Vespers for a New Dark Age was named #37 on Q2’s “Best 50 albums of the last 20 years”, one of the top albums of 2015 by WNYC’s John Schaefer, Steve Smith of the Boston Globe, and Textura, and was used in dance pieces by choreographers Robert Binet (National Ballet of Canada) and Kitty MacNamee. Check out Kitty’s piece here, directly from the streets of LA.
