[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”15″] worriedaboutsatan are a Yorkshire based electronica band who incorporate swirling ambient melancholia, skyscraping post-rock guitar atmospherics, and pounding slo-mo techno.
Brand new mix from British duo of Thomas Ragsdale (who also records as Winter Son) and Gavin Miller. Ambient, as defined by worriedaboutsatan, means far more than just a pleasant sonic wallpaper – case in point being the inclusion of tracks by Gnod and JPEGMAFIA, two artists that are not traditionally associated with the genre, but fit the mix perfectly nonetheless. “Ritual of the Maize’, the track that kicks off the compilation, is a recording of American Indian music that dates all the way back to 19th century!
