EMÆNUEL – New Album ‘SUKISTAN’ out May 27th on sound as language / New Single “Dust” Streaming Now

EMÆNUEL is an artist from the equator. Exploring ideas around music’s emotional force and nature.

SUKISTAN was written a few years ago in Kolkata. An experiment in rapid exploration, it was left shelved for years and experimented on sporadically. The corpus of the music is purely unrecognizable from what it was before. It’s an album as an exercise in self-immolation. It’s made to sound like the remnants of a series of daydreams, or the soundtrack to several kinds of prayers. The feelings are cold and warm, rough and smooth, small and large. It is dedicated to a friend who restored faith in the artist. No small feat.

HEALING MAGIC are a natural force of raw sludge, splicing fuzzed-out riffage, ritualistic rhythms, and colossal heaviness amidst drifts of smoke and psychedelics. The duo, hailing from the deserts of Arizona, take influence from the majesty of the mountains, mesas, and spirit of the Canyon State, imparting the music with a blazing desert vibe.
