Transcendental drone/rock outfit Darsombra will take its sprawling audio/visual live act on the road next week for the twelve city "Southern US Wintour" 2013.
Touring in support of the "Climax Community" LP, released in October via Germany’s eclectic Exile On Mainstream, the Wintour 2013 is set to embark on February 15th, with shows confirmed throughout Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee.
Decibel Magazine is streaming "Climax Community" in its entirety at this location. The following press release was issued about the album:
"The three tracks on the LP traversing forty-five minutes of the outfit’s unique, slow-building, organic transcendental rock. Brian Daniloski, a veteran of heavier, sludgier, grittier rock bands such as Meatjack and Trephine, controls the sound of Darsombra, alternating between mammoth vocal swells and soundscapes and searing guitar riffs, leads, loops, and samples, combining elements of metal, psychedelic rock, experimental/drone, prog and krautrock. But there is more than just Daniloski’s sonic world at play here as video artist Ann Everton takes his work to the next level by bringing her Darsombra-induced visions to the stage through her kinetic psychotropic video projections, creating a constantly shifting backdrop to Daniloski’s live performances."

Darsombra's "Eternal Jewel" CD on Public Guilt is now available at darsombra.com. This disc will not be in stores until April 29th.
"Eternal Jewel," the second full length album from Baltimore's Brian Daniloski, is a mix of improvised and structured recordings primarily composed on the baritone guitar. The tracks are best described as equal parts doom, psychedelic experimentation and 20th Century composition. From powerful and doom drenched sections to minimal and shimmering to aggressive rhythms that sound like a pounding string section, Eternal Jewel is some of the strongest material yet from Darsombra.
The packaging for this release features letter-pressed metallic silver ink on thick black gatefold sleeve with a six panel, art only booklet with two mixed media pieces by artist/package designer Stephen Kasner. You can check out the full layout on Darsombra's MySpace.
