ErstLive is a series of releases from Erstwhile Records, documenting notable live sets associated with the label. The discs are designed to simulate a concert experience, each in the same template design using two colors chosen by the musicians involved, with a photo of the concert on the back cover. Because of this philosophy, the sets are not streaming before purchase, although you can find short sound clips on the individual catalog pages on the Erst site (erstwhilerecords.com).

*In this sprawling audio "cycle", Stephan explores analogue sounds and drones that are peaceful, subtle and abstract at times. Like any large compendium, one must revisit it time and again to capture all that is exquisitely presented. If resolute, there are many beautiful rewards to discover here.
Best w/ headphones... Enjoy!
