Witchhouse duo Aimon released their debut self-titled full-length in late 2013, via Artoffact Records.
The album features the song “Seraphim,” which places doom-filled electronic rhythms and male/female duet vocals atop of a squalling bed of atmospheric electronics. There are also three remixes of the same tune, including Bites' robo remake, Blush Response's thudding beat experiment, and Bombardier's static-soaked haze of textures. The record also includes a cover of Leonard Cohen's “Darkness.”
