Download: “Fragrant Nimbus” – Skull Defekts (mp3, 14mb)

Six and a half this-just-in minutes off Peer Amid, a new album by Swedish band Skull Defekts, who now feature the sui generis tattooist-shaman-Lungfisher Daniel Higgs on vocals.

Details on the band and how to obtain a copy of this album, which is out Feb. 22, here:
