It’s been a while since my days of drowning my sorrows instead of feeling them. Watching these captivating videos from The Lovecraft Sextet — created with footage from the short film Alma by Dutch filmmaker Kevin Kessels — has me reminiscing about all the times I wondered when I’d have smoked enough, drank enough, for the feelings to disappear for good.
Set to the experimental doomjazz soundtrack of two of their songs, “Darkness” and “These Nights,” these videos just become more haunting. Both gorgeous avant-garde soundscapes are off their recent release Nights of Lust that came out last month via Denovali Records — get it here. Right now, watch our premieres of “Darkness” and “These Nights” below, and let The Lovecraft Sextet soothe your pain.
