Dissimulation

by Emmaline Twist

Soundscapes that evoke the angular, anxious energy of bustling cities, combined with a sonic atmosphere that’s as wide as the prairie sky, yet always retaining the “workmanlike” spirit that is a hallmark of Midwestern rock music.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Post-Punk / Shoegaze band Emmaline Twist is releasing their debut 12” LP, Dissimulation, August 24 on Kansas City record label cooperative Black Site. These eight tracks combine the urgent and dark Post-Punk of bands like New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chameleons, and The Cure with the spacious, dreamy atmosphere of Shoegaze bands such as Slowdive, Tamaryn, and Lush.

Emmaline Twist’s sound is unique to Kansas City; the songs on Dissimulation are vast and spacious, creating soundscapes that evoke the angular, anxious energy of bustling cities, combined with a sonic atmosphere that’s as wide as the prairie sky, yet always retaining the “workmanlike” spirit that is a hallmark of Midwestern rock music. These songs are not autobiographical documentations; they are universal announcements, intended less as personal stories and more as soundtracks to the listener’s own adventures.

Dissimulation was recorded, mixed, and produced at Massive Sound by Paul Malinowski, Mastered by Mike Nolte of Eureka Mastering, and mastered for vinyl by Chris Muth at Taloowa Corp.,
As with all Black Site releases, this record not only sounds great, it looks even better. With cover artwork by Kansas City painter Amy Abshier combined with stark graphic design by Emmaline Twist’s own drummer Jonathan Knecht, Emmaline Twist’s physical document of “Dissimulation” is a haunting-yet-hopeful aesthetic that is truly a reflection of these uneasy times.
