Michael Morley

Heavens Idleness Awaits (PRE-ORDER Ships Feb 22)



Michael Morley has long been acclaimed for his electric guitar and electronic forays in New Zealand’s legendary The Dead C and Gate. On Heavens Idleness Awaits he strips his music to its most elemental state. Recorded at home and using only a single tracked 12-string acoustic guitar, Morley creates an intimate and intensely meditative work. Over four side-long tracks, he weaves hypnotic melodic figures that slowly unfurl to reveal a minimalist masterwork and one of his most powerful statements to date.

Side A: Cease the Four Winds
Side B: The Endless Case for Gravity
Side C: Forever in True Core
Side D: A Termination of Baleful Sunsets
