  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Limited edition package featuring both "Songs of Yearning" and "Nocturnes". Each LP comes in its own sleeve ("Songs" also has a printed inner), then there's an additional wraparound sleeve (you get one of two variant designs) to hold both, an insert and an A3 poster, all placed in a protective polybag.

    Given that many overseas sales may now, due to the idiocy of Brexit, attract sales taxes of some kind, we've decided to reduce the basic price of this and other items. Obviously this means less money for us, the label, and the band, but having discussed it together, we've jointly decided we'd rather more people were able to hear and own the records.

    Please note that standard postage prices here do not include tracking and will be posted at the buyer's risk. Most post is getting through, albeit often with considerable delays, especially overseas. If you'd like to add tracking to your order this costs a flat-fee of £5 outside the UK. Please send us a message and we'll organise this for you. We are shipping approximately once a week at present.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Songs of Yearning via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Songs of Yearning is the fourth RAIJ album and perhaps their most coherent single body of work to date. An enticing combination of eastern religious sounds and iconography, acoustic and electric instrumentation, and lilting, meditative vocals, Songs of Yearning features pieces in no fewer than six different languages: Greek, French, English, Latin, a Finnish dialect of Swedish, and Russian.
IMPORTANT:
If you order the 2xLP or 2xCD physical edition you're entitled to a Bandcamp code for the extra album "Nocturnes", please drop us a line at orders@occultation.co.uk, from the e-mail address you used to buy (or giving other proof of purchase) and we'll send you one.
Given the situation at the moment, we're currently shipping orders at least once a week, sometimes two or even three times.

Thank you.
