A-Sun Amissa released their debut “Desperate in Her Heavy Sleep” in March 2012. Some days before Gizeh Records released the album, the band did a small tour through Europe supporting Aidan Baker. The show at Christuskirche Bochum hosted by thepostrock.de was in many ways a special event. A-Sun Amissa did a solo set, Aidan Baker played an improvised set with Maik Erdas (Kodiak) on Drums and as a special closure A-Sun Amissa played an improvised set with Aidan and Maik.
Now, we want to focus on the A-Sun Amissa set. Imagine three musicians sitting in a hemicycle in front of an altar. Fully focused in playing their instruments, sitting on wooden chairs, letting all sounds melt together, letting the sounds move through the church hall… This set has an ineffable gravity, moving between ambient, modern classic and blues sounds.
You can download the album for free here.
A-Sun Amissa will be on tour with Aidan Baker again in February/March 2013.
