Really noisy pressing here too. Visual marks as mentioned by other reviewers - very disappointed.

My copy also has a pressing issues. Random noise/pops/cracks in areas of the song that are not present on the mp3 version. The majority of the issues appear on side A, and I noticed a a few sections of side A with tiny little scratches in a sort of pattern, all within the same area of the record, like this http://imgur.com/a/9M6ML

Clean pressing?!?! Not the 2 copies I've listened to. Shame as it's a great LP.

Finally the beauty that is Pale ravine has been repressed - this is what I have waited years for. Best release of 2016.

Possibly the most cinematic body of music that I own. More so even then the movie soundtracks in my collection. Pale Ravine is a dark, mysterious and ambient voyage into electronic music. The key to the sound is the effortless fusion of modern classical with field recordings and unique soundscapes. My personal favorite here is the track 'Thread'... Visions of a old tavern in the woods from medieval times always pop into my head while listening to it. Each track takes you on a different journey though and there isn't any need to go on describing the sound: you need this album. The only downside is the fact that the Deaf Center duo nolonger make music together. They have seperate projects now, one being Svarte Greiner and the other being Nest. I recommend the latter far much more if you're looking for similar music to Pale Ravine.

Norwegian based, Erik Skodvin and Otto Totland produce a cinematic album as inspired by the "old silent 8mm film reels and historical architecture". Skvodin's releases should be familiar to you under his Svarte Greiner alias on Type Records, as well as Xhale and Solitaire Albread monikers with numerous releases on Miasmah. Totland has also contributed to Miasmah under Supine alias, and collaborated with Serein netlabel owner, Huw Roberts, as Nest. So it seems that the duo has their hands full, yet Deaf Center already scheduled a 7" in the pipeline for Type Records. Getting back to Pale Ravine - this is a true modern classical marvel, with slight undertones of ambient bliss; an album that excretes melancholy and drenches the soul in sadness; an acoustic phonography reserved for lazy Sunday afternoons, or early morning Saturdays. Either way, for either day, the world of Death Center is not unlike an archive of old and treasured films, left carelessly to age somewhere in the attic, only to be rediscovered once again... and celebrated once again. RIYL : Marsen Jules, Clickits, Goldmund, and Helios. Favorite tracks: White Lake, Thunder Night and The Clearing.
