Belgian/Italian electronica pioneers Lumisokea release 'Selva', their second album to date. Composed during the winter of 2012 and produced in the amazing analog studio at Worm/Rotterdam, ‘Selva’ offers an excellent follow-up to their debut release ‘Automatons’. The duo continue their experimental approach by mixing vintage synths, prepared piano, samples and cello, creating a thick and warm sound that contrasts brilliantly with the atmosphere of the songs which are mostly heavy and desolate.
The vinyl album is packaged in 200 unique, laser-cut sleeves, hand-numbered and pressed on heavy 180 gram vinyl. Digital album comes free with the vinyl release.

"..There’s a uniquely serene choral element present in their music – which can sometimes prefer to channel a harsh kind of brutality that becomes engulfing after a little while – and on tracks like the eponymous ‘Selva’ or ‘Chimera’ you really get a feel for the kind of balance they seem to be able to excel in producing...Arresting sound design at its most engaging. "
- Juno Records
"..The title track, "Selva" is a standout piece, bridging together a frantic, disorganised drum pattern with ferocious slashes of white noise and feedback. Lumisokea ties things off in style with the aptly named "Chimera", a frightening display of aqueous bleeps and echoing bass drums. TIP! "
