School of Seven Bells

School of Seven Bells - Windstorm
School of Seven Bells - Heart is Strange

As if you didn't already know, Disconnect From Desire is the highly anticipated second full-length from School of Seven Bells, and it features the same array of gorgeous digital arrangements of swirling electronic beats and lush, hypnotic vocal harmonies that you've probably come to expect from this trio of musicians. Not surprisingly, the bulk of this disc is made up of dizzyingly diverse compositions that are absolutely steeped in mysterious atmospherics... which of course begs the question: Does SVIIB transcend the restrictions of traditional musical genres with this new album, as a few of the early write-ups/reviews tend to imply? The Liquid Jesus short answer to this question would have to be... perhaps.

Disconnect From Desire will be released on August 13th, via Ghostly Int./Vagrant
