In line with the WINTER LADY release, Denovali Records will release HIGHWAYMEN IN MIDNIGHT MASKS as a 10’’. On the B-side: ‘i have my heart’ and ‘forbidden love’, a collaboration with prolific artist AIDAN BAKER (NADJA, INFINITE LIGHT LTD.). The track juxtaposes Alicia's harsh distorted guitars, with an ethereal flute drone courtesy of Baker. This unassuming contrast of polar opposites has visceral consequences: Alicia's signature vocals sit on top, telling a
story of a dark love a­ffair, while Baker's vocal sits below - reduced to an ambient texture. The result: a 'Gregorian Chant' for fans of acid drenched drone, a 'Post, post-rock' love song of epic proportions, a lyrical journey of exploration in to the philosophical depravities of The Marquis de Sade.

Mastered by NILS FRAHM.


released December 17, 2011

All music produced by Alicia Merz, except 'Forbidden Love' produced by Alicia Merz and Aidan Baker.
