The Gap

Juxtaposing more traditional acoustic arrangements against artificial future sounds, JOAN OF ARC has created The Gap (JT1053). Going way overboard and exhausting every option, with up to 100 tracks on certain songs, "The Gap" bears witness to a band evolving and crafting beautiful new territory. Use headphones and close your eyes.
