It’s still early, but six months after it dropped, Aethiopes has the feeling of a masterpiece. Not only is there no other album like it, we don’t think anyone has ever even tried to make an album like it. Experimental, uncompromising, grand in scope and yet intimate in its workings, Preservation and woods did something really special with this one. We didn’t put it up for pre-order in April because we weren’t sure how long we would have to wait for the vinyl, and in retrospect it feels good that it worked out this way. We appreciate everyone who was patient with us getting everything together; Aethiopes vinyl is here now and ready to ship!
