CELESTE - ‘ANIMALE(S)’ 2xlp /400 clear & black 180g. vinyl.
Intense music and great artwork are what we have come to expect from CELESTE releases.
My usual - and only - trouble with this are the same as with their previous albums; the cardstock innersleeves are too tight to contain the records. You can’t slide them out; they must be pulled hard. Furthermore, the gatefold is too tight to contain the innersleeves, and the spine of the sleeve seems to be not wide enough for proper containment either.
If you are already hooked on huge-sounding, chaotic tunes, CELESTE will most certainly hit home, as they end up somewhere between post-rock, European screamo and straight up metal. People digging anything from Isis to Oathbreaker or Sed Non Satiata should dig their claws into ‘ANIMALE(S)’ instantly.
