about

FiXT is proud to announce Comaduster as the inaugural signing to the label's newest division – FiXT Labs! To celebrate this partnership, FiXT and Comaduster are excited to re-release a special remastered edition of the critically acclaimed 2013 Electronic/IDM album, Hollow Worlds, along with FiXT re-releasing Comaduster's 2017 album Solace, ahead of new material later in Fall/Winter 2018. Plus, for the first time ever, the instrumental versions of each track from Hollow Worlds will be available in November 2018.

Drawing from a deep well of influences, Hollow Worlds encompasses a distinctive range of musical styles skillfully incorporating elements of industrial, dubstep, EDM, post-rock, glitch, IDM, ambient, and pop music into a wholly polished and cohesive assembly of work that garners cerebral as well as dancefloor allure. From start to finish, Hollow Worlds executes a potent strike, sustaining a proficient balance of bass-heavy beats, gushing synth melodies, taut rhythmic structures, and absorbing lyrics with humanistic vocals to match.

Unlike many artists who attempt such audacious genre hybrids, Comaduster dispatches it masterfully, resulting in an accomplished collection of tangible songs that authenticate an intriguing and seductive contrast between complexity and accessibility. This musical skill set puts him right at home with the rest of the genre-blending roster of FiXT. Reasonable parallels can be likened to the sounds of such influential acts as Haujobb and Hecq, however Comaduster has commanded these influences as mere inspirational ingredients to create a transcendent style and distinguished sound to claim as his own.

Track Name: Winter Eyes
I couldn't mend
Your body stretched
To the red
Where I begin
Your frozen skin's cracked lead
Sifting through my lens

And I can't suspend
From above your solitude
The silence exposes the frost
To freeze
My
Voice
My
Spade
To
Break you out

Your winter eyes
Glassy white
I feel your darkness become mine
If I could move
Within your rules
I could pierce right through the
Ice

I fight
To Coalesce
What you've chose to erase
Now I am blank
In a motionless
Icy accretion
That's taken a hold

Your winter eyes
Glassy white
I feel your darkness become mine
If I could move
Within your rules
I could pierce right through the
Ice

Your winter eyes
Glassy white
I feel your darkness become mine
If I could move
Within your rules
I could pierce right through the
Ice
Track Name: The Send Off
Wrapped around the way you chant
You're remembered in that height
A perfect send you off
To become the planet
Show your heart
Tell me you're capable
To wander where we dream of murder

I'm pushing hard
And you're holding back
It was in reach
And you walked away

Now it's all put away
Well you must be entertained
I'm at a loss
There is nothing out here anyway

I feel my thoughts remain intact
But your memories are razor lightning fast
Within the cracks and shears
Your tongue within my ear
Your coward rays that shine
Ride with the night
Writhing

Pushing hard
And you're holding back
I was in reach
And you walked away

Slightly
Potent
Whispering
In my ear
Mostly
Broken
Twisted words
Leaving you

Now it's all put away
Well you must be entertained
I'm at a loss
There is nothing out here anyway

Now it's all put away
Well you must be entertained
I'm at a loss
There is nothing out here anyway
Track Name: Hollow Worlds
I don't dream it seams
They're brown, frayed, blue, faded,
Things

Do me your worst
I'm in your waters
So I'm your prisoner
Waist deep
Within a fountain
On a frozen lake
Where I'm your shadow no more

Your shadow no more
Your shadow no more

I hear your words
Out of sync
You get the worst right out of me
And once I've lost
I'll be crawling out the center
I'm inside your walls
Out of reach
Falling backwards through a maze
And once I've lost
I will hollow out the center

Entomb me
To be sure
I'm in your shelter
And I'm your prisoner

I'm closer
To dreaming
Caught between these hollow worlds
And I let
The demons loose
To catch me in the waters below

I'm close now
To dreaming
I'm caught between these hollow worlds
And I let
The demons loose
To catch me in the waters below
Track Name: Walls
One slight move
We'd fall from the edge
And I can see clearly
Since you had marked the way

You dissolve
What I hide inside
These walls
Held in the night
You shine
Right through the blackened hollow
Walls that keep me down

I wait
Unfound
So I can dream forever
There's always
Storm clouds
So we can freeze together

One slight move
I don't react
Now I am bleeding
But you enshroud the vein

I wait
Unfound
So I can dream forever
There's always
Storm clouds
So we can freeze together
Track Name: Chasms
When all our breadth
Fades to one bound circle
A chasm on surface of our malice is opened
I won't fade in to a marred animal
If you come back down

Just come back
Soon

I'm burning next to waterfalls
As I'm standing next to you
This phase can't end
Until you return

Shatter spires
Echoes (of) burning
Imbue the sky
With faces blurring
Can't turn my eyes
Forever recurring
This phase can't end
Until you return
Until you return
Track Name: Futureproof Design
(I get destructive)

My plastic intentions
Bubbling over a flame so high
My future candle's lit
And the river's dry
Inspiration smoulders
As tinder for desire
A logical process instills design
But still I try to remind myself
Of you and I
Of faces right inside the lines
Pointing out my future-proof design

You're safe
With me
Tonight
Take what you need
From me
To fight
Your rage
And burn your darkest days alive

These elastic evasions
Have pulled me from
A tree of life
My future candle's lit
And I'm on fire
Incineration of temptations that I hide
Are smoking embers smothered by time
Still I find no thoughts align
With you
And my
Plan to override
This lie
Hoping now our futures can survive

(I don't know I don't think it's working that well)

You're safe
With me
Tonight
Take what you need
From me
To fight
Your rage
And burn your darkest days alive

One more tear
Won't surface here
One more time
Won't realign
Track Name: Nightsail (feat. Cecil Frena)
On the grim night we sailed
You enchanting little terror
Frosted over and reckless
Bitter creature of the air

No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our thoughts in open hands
No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our dreams in open hands

I dreamt a halt to your hurt
But maybe just replies that work
But for now I'll just sleep
So hideous
O Infinity

And you knew I could be moved
And you knew that this was doomed
And you knew that you were ruined
You did look down (didn't you?)

No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our thoughts in open hands
No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our dreams in open hands

No one else
Understands a tender stroke
Your love learned
To hold my head under a pillow
No one else
Your love learned
To hold my head under a pillow

No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our thoughts in open hands
No good will ever come of weighing that
The density of our dreams in open hands
Track Name: Connecting The Seams
In wide angles
The time billows up
Your sharp tale sings
Like the wind in the wires
To me

(but) you're infected
So you won't be
Devoured
Connecting the seams
