March 2007 release. "Our second release by the up and coming ambient doom band Nadja. Nadja is made of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff. Baker, the project's founder is an insanely prolific musician under his own name under which he releases solo works for such prestigious labels as Germany's Die Stadt, as well countless CD and CD-R releases all over the world. He is also an accomplished poet and visual artist. Buckareff rounds out the band on bass guitar and backing vocals. While credit is owed to likes of such pioneering legends Earth, current king pins SUNN((O))) and Boris for defining the genre, Nadja take more inspiration from artists hailing from the dark ambient and electronica fields. Passages on this latest release can be compared to saturated wall of ambient noise perfected by the likes of Tim Hecker and Fennesz or Justin K. Broadrick's Jesu project. Like the sound of our earlier Truth Becomes Death release, Touched is ambient music being pushed to its breaking point, yet the overall feel is a slightly more gentle. Parts of the album feature the use of clean undistorted vocals, something rather unique in the genre, hinting at the sounds of such bands as Codeine, Swans or Joe Preston's Thrones project."
