Listen to ‘Enter The Bristle Strum’ now.

Experimental percussionist Eli Keszler will return to Shelter Press with a new EP, Empire.

According to the label, the three-track release is about “finding stillness, tranquility and beauty in a dystopian landscape” and is described by Keszler as depicting “the illusion of order during declines.”

The record is a thematic and stylistic follow-up to his album Stadium, which featured in our list of the best albums of 2018.
