California-based musician ALAK is set to release a five-track EP in a week and a half called Guardian Petted via Kaleidoscope's LIMITED DUBS series. Due out on October 21st, it will be released digitally (with a free download) and as a limited run of 8 unique, individually recorded cassettes.

'The Gorge', which features on the EP, is an unsettling track that combines introspective ambience with arrhythmic sounds; an emulation of those very specific vibes one gets the second before a heavy thunderstorm erupts. When the track passes the second-minute mark, the rain arrives - allowing us to breathe normally again as the feverish trance from the air is removed.
