Scythling began with improvised sessions by Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, Infinite Light Ltd.) and Josh Rothenberger (Bloody Panda) recorded live in-studio in Brooklyn, NY in February 2008. The resultant material was subsequently re-worked and shaped into the three tracks featured on Smokefall, including independent contributions from various guest musicians. The resultant album combines elements of both Baker's and Rothenberger's respective bands to create something new -- a mixture of heavy drones and spacious ambient, creeping darkness and eerie light. The additional textures brought to the table, such as the vocals of Rebecca Fasanello and the hammered dulcimer of Michael Tamburo, further elevate the release into transcendent realms.
