This self-titled effort is a gorgeous, potent mix of frazzled, art-house guitar, sweeping harmonies and layers of noise, and deserves a place in any discerning music fan’s collection.

‘The Gospel’ may never find its way into the mainstream, but, for music lovers who still treat the art from with reverence and respect, the album is a gift to be treasured.
It’ll make your brain hurt, but it’ll also give you the adrenalin kick that so few records offer now.
‘Maybe I should have some pride’ is a great record that’ll leave you with a huge smile on your face – gloriously, wonderfully unique, it has no immediate peers and it’s simply a joyous experience from its atypical start to its distortion-laden conclusion. Find this gem before it vanishes!
For those who have a passion for music in its extremist form, the crushing darkness of ‘from all purity’ is an essential purchase – bleak, tormented and presented with a production that allows the music to seep, like slowly coagulating blood, from the speakers, this is surely the pinnacle of Indian’s achievements and it stands tall with the likes of ‘things viral’ and ‘filth’ – an uneasy and quite remarkable success.
This is dark, powerful and extreme music, but played with a sense of invention and exploration that is hypnotic and addictive.
