Out today: The Royal Arctic Institute 'From Coma to Catharsis'

The Royal Arctic Institute's 'From Coma to Catharsis' is out today on cassette (limited to 125), digital (Bandcamp), and all streaming services! Also available in the February Tape Bundle, with Taste Rubber's 'Test'.

Cinematic jazz quintet The Royal Arctic Institute return with their new EP, 'From Coma to Catharsis'. The follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed and much beloved 'From Catnap to Coma', fans of the latter will find much to enjoy here, as the band forges ahead with their unique blend of instrumental jazz and post-punk, which they've aptly dubbed 'post-everything'. Members John Leon (guitar), and Lyle Hysen (drums) combine 50+ years of experience (Das Damen, Roky Erickson’s backing band, & more). The quintet is rounded out by David Motamed (bass), Lynn Wright (guitar), and Carl Baggaley (keyboard).
