Following 2020'sThis Devastating Map, Jason Albertini has solidified and simplified the Helvetia sound with Essential Aliens. The character of the recordings are informed with warm fuzz and intimate room sounds. The songs are short blasts of psychedelic chill, unrooted by genre, a rummage around an alien radio dial.
Available for preorder now, Essential Aliens will be available on Digital, "Ectoplasm Clear" Vinyl, and Limited Edition VIP Vinyl. The VIP Edition is pressed on the unique vinyl color pictured below – which we're calling "Cerulean Blue Inside Ectoplasm Clear" vinyl.
VIP Edition Vinyl is limited to 400 pressed to Cerulean Blue inside 'Ectoplasm Clear' vinyl with yellow and white splatter. Includes bonus 7" Flexi of unreleased track "For Sam," written in memory of Sam Jayne (Love as Laughter).
