13 Holy NightsHidden Shoal is excited to announce the release of 13 Holy Nights, the wonderful new album from The World of Dust, the musical project of Stefan Breuer. The album is available now on vinyl, CD and digital via Bandcamp and to stream on Spotify along with the other usual suspects. The album is released through Lousy Moon RecordsTiny Room Records and Almost Halloween Time Records. The music of The World of Dust is available for licensing via Hidden Shoal (film, tv, web etc).

The 13 Holy Nights take place from 23th December to 6th January. According to anthroposophical teachings, a stronger connection with the spiritual world is possible during this magical time. By following ancient rituals you can reconnect with the natural world and tune in with where you stand in life. One way to look back on the past year and forward to the next is through dreams. During the winter solstice of 2022, The World of Dust’s Stefan Breuer documented his dreams and turned them into these songs.

13 Holy Nights was recorded on a Tascam 388, a ¼-inch tape machine Stefan also used when he started recording at the age of 10. No guitars were used, just percussion, bass, vocals and keyboards. Most of the sounds come from the Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler synthesizer. Weird new sounds for weird dreams, influenced by artists like Robert Wyatt, Portishead, Robert Pollard and The Microphones.
