Francis Harris returns to his own Scissor & Thread label—under the Aris Kindt alias—with the release of a new album titled: Floods. This most recent project has been written in collaboration with longtime friend and guitarist; Gabe Hedrick and precedes Harris’ sophomore solo album, Minutes of Sleep, released on the same imprint in 2014.

As stated in a press release, it took the artists over a year to write the entire project, “using a vintage 808, a modular eurorack and two guitars” as main tools. According to Scissor & Thread, Floods’ main focus will be on “W.G. Sebald’s profound interpretation of Rembrandt’s 1632 master work, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.”
