Young Hierophant's new extended play has arrived: "The Thin Place" is an eerie wander through the eternal, mystical woods in four acts. Created on vintage wood-grained equipment under a haze of incense and licorice, the album is an autumnal analog fantasia perfect for this season where the veil is thinner than ever. Comparisons to the English label Ghost Box and the warbly cinematic accompaniments of 16mm horror films are not inappropriate, yet this time around the songs have grown into a more beat-driven direction, culminating in a euphoric workout created with traditional Chicago house music instrumentation and techniques. "The Thin Place" is an ideal accompaniment for this harvest season of lengthening nights and the approach of All Saints' Day.

"Struck down on the road to halidom, the kid was wounded but not mortally. A year of careful ministration followed, then a second, exhalations whirling through the sky in oneiric time-lapse, constellations and zodiacal fantasias. Finally hale and restored to full constitution, his journey continues into the environs, lantern swaying in defiance. The woods are deep and mysterious, strange aloes and lichens under the lunar glow - no road! Onward he marches. The healing church is yet in the distance, bells pealing through the fog and mire."
