THE ASPHODELLS is the partnership between two great producers/djs. ANDREW WEATHERALL and TIMOTHY J. FAIPLAY. A friendship that goes back to the time when TIMOTHY was with BATTANT in the latter part of 2000s and ANDREW helped out on production. Now, years later, both fount together in this collaboration project called THE ASPHODELLS. Their album Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust is another game changer, since ANDREW has left behin the rock’n’roll leanings of WRONG MEETING and A POX ON THE PIONEERS and now looks back to the purer electronics of KRAFTWERK-inflected TWO LONE SWORDSMEN.
With Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust THE ASPHODELLS bring an album that is saturated in repetitive beats overlaid with sinous melodies played out over whole tracks. This is what can be called “hypnotic psychedelic electronic sounds”. The songs still feature but sound haunted, guitars still ground the tracks but are more resonant.
THE ASPHODELLS is WEATHERALL and FAIRPLAY bringing an album that could be the soundtrack for a journey through time and space. Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust dimly reflects our very own.
