Austin, TX’s Cortége Brings Post-Western Doom/Drone on Forthcoming Debut Album ‘Capricorn’

 Post-Western Doom/Drone Duo Cortége will release debut album Capricorn on September 27 on CD and vinyl LP. Members Mike Swarbick and Adrian Voorhies (ex-Canyon of the Skull, ex-Humut Tabal) create a listening experience that is at once heavy, experimental, and utterly cinematic, a primary feature thereof the captivate tones of tubular bells, as well as Roland string synthesizer, Moog Taurus synthesizer, and waterphone.

Album track “Horizons” is now streaming at: cortege.bandcamp.com/track/horizons
.
Exploring the wide dynamic between the two players,Capricorn is a monster work and the most musically varied recording to date. Although keeping the traditional instrumental theme throughout, the album explores the story of a misguided and waylaid explorer of space and his experiences in a foreign world. Complete with a fully illustrated comic book insert to help listeners along in the story and an accompanying music video directed by Lake Travis Film Festival founder and director Kat Albert, the record takes the band’s deepest influences to a wide and poignant actualization.
.
Now with their first international dates booked and an sprawling East Coast tour scheduled in support of Capricorn for the late Fall, the band readies themselves to cover more ground than ever before.
.
The vinyl LP version of Capricorn features beautiful transparent white vinyl, and includes a comic book by Dan Marschner detailing the story and concept of the album via gorgeous illustrations inspired by sci-fi pop art of decades past.
.
Cortége will hit the stage for a CD release show on September 27 at Skull Mechanix Brewing in Austin, TX with Sheverb and Bridge Farmer, which will include the live premiere of an official video directed by Kat Albert (Lake Travis Film Festival).
