Originally released in 2016 by Klopotec and ZARŠ on CD, Širom’s first album I. saw the light again on a double gatefold vinyl, including two unreleased magical tracks from the same record session, out by Italian label Torto Editions.
The metaphysic and the “out of time” stream of (alt)counsciousness gets richer and even wider vibrations on this new vinyl edition. The new tracklist developed on four sides helps to give the record a spacier, deeper and detailed texture.
Brand new mastering by Udi Koomran.
