The new release of Nahal Recordings, the project of Mondkopf and Frédéric D. Oberland, comes from Blackthread, real name Pierre G. Desenfant. 

The Way You Haunt My Dreams, the Lyon artist's third album, is mysterious and strangely calming, often on the verge of being dark without ever falling on that side. It was written and constructed for three years, and then recorded with in only a few days, with the contribution of sounds from friends (Béatrice Morel, Frédéric D. Oberland & Stéphane Pigneul de Oiseaux-Tempête, Rémi Dulaurier) and the complicity of Johannes Buff. 

We're told that the LP sees Desenfant grapple with the tension of a certain genre of dark rock and the literary post punk, all superimposed on ambient music. It features spoken word, aimed to give depth and personality to the music.
