Jóhann Jóhannsson's gorgeous 2009 album And In The Endless Pause There Came The Sound Of Bees, released on tape for Cassette Store Day 2016. Jóhannsson is the Icelandic composer and Golden Globe winner responsible for 2016's Arrival soundtrack as well as the upcoming score for Blade Runner 2049. Popmatters wrote this about the album in 2010, awarding it an eight out of ten, "Jóhannsson combines choral, orchestral and electronic elements with devastating effect to complement the tale of a creature struggling to survive the life-threatening consequences of a reckless indifference... some of the passages and evolving themes in his albums may be the musical equivalent of a series of Rothko canvases: capable of absorbing and reflecting one's emotional and spiritual concerns, and also of unearthing feelings and memories." Housed in a deluxe fold-over package manufactured by Stumptown Printers using recycled paper; Screen printing by The Make House; Updated design by James Casey for FISK; Edition of 100.
