On May 27, Icelandic electronic producer Ben Frost will release his new album A U R O R A, via Mute. It was primarily recorded in the Congo, and features contributions from Guardian Alien drummer Greg Fox and Swans/Shearwater percussionist Thor Harris. It’s a dark and noisy collection of industrial ambient compositions, and it ranks among the most intense things we’ve heard all year, alongside the new Swans album, To Be Kind.
