Announcing: Tsembla ‘The Hole In The Landscape’ + Music Video

Today it is our distinct pleasure to announce a brand new NNA release: Tsembla ‘The Hole In The Landscape’ is now available for pre-order on Limited Edition Vinyl & Digital formats. Tsembla is the solo musical endeavor of Finnish-Swedish artist Marja Ahti, a member of the Kemialliset Ystävät musical collective, as well as one half of electro-acoustic duo Ahti & Ahti with her partner Niko-Matti Ahti. The music of Tsembla is a lush, electronic world of creative new sounds, pieced together meticulously with incredible detail. ‘The Hole In The Landscape’ is a collection of eight tracks based around the ideas of positivity and negativity in terms of matter, and the absence and presence of the physical world around us. Ahti uses synthesizers in conjunction with played and sampled instruments, objects, field recordings, and more to create an intriguing patchwork of rhythm, texture, and melody through the use of intricate layering. This album is the second release in NNA’s LPX Limited Edition Vinyl series, which utilizes local manufacturers, businesses, and craftspeople from our hometown of Burlington, Vermont. These records feature silkscreen printed jackets and colored vinyl, and are hand-stamped, numbered, and assembled by Matt & Toby in a limited edition of 350 copies. Plus, the first 100 copies will come on limited Swirled Pink & Blue vinyl on a first come, first served basis (the remainder of the edition will come on White vinyl). Pre-orders are available now in our Shop. Officially available everywhere on May 25th, 2018.

To celebrate today’s announcement, our friends at Resident Advisor are premiering a music video of the first single “Gravitating Bones,” directed by Providence, RI-based visual artist Leah Beeferman. The textural, hypnotic visuals perfectly compliment the opening track of the album. Watch the video courtesy of Resident Advisor here.
