corvuschao I love these soundscapes and the concepts and collecting behind them. Emotive and uncluttered sounds, perfect music for working, thinking, or deep listening.

Julian Grant Beautiful and inspirational work. On repeat listening, the work continues to resonate. A true work of ghostly sonic alchemy.

Danica Swanson Forlorn, desolate, and infused with dark grandeur, these eerie drones build into a hypnotic crescendo that peaks in the last and most grandiose track, "Architectôn." Even after thousands (yes, thousands!) of listens, this exquisite album still gives me chills. Like many dark ambient fans, I consider it among the best-of-the-best in the genre. I often point neophytes to it, with the caveat that it may spoil you: not many albums ever reach this kind of pinnacle! Favorite track: Cella.

This Is Darkness Par Bostrom leaves the dream worlds behind as Cities Last Broadcast and returns to this forsaken place we call home, The Cancelled Earth is post-apocalyptic darkness at its finest. Favorite track: Deadpost.

Pär Boström, the man behind the acclaimed project KAMMARHEIT offers us a new and unexpected entity under the name Cities Last Broadcast. The Cancelled Earth album is the result of almost a decade of sporadic field recordings mainly recorded in airports, train stations, various tunnels and under numerous bridges all greatly polished and turned into a refined mass of desolate ambience and subtle hypnosis all engulfed in Pär's legendary signature sound. Through Cities Last Broadcast the buildings themselves will gather to whisper about their inscrutable story.

Cities Last Broadcast Umeå, Sweden

Cities Last Broadcast was intended as an archive of sounds heard at night - sounds from stations, traffic, air vents and distant factories. Over time it evolved into an abstract story, told by abandoned buildings and ghosts. A kind of séance.
