In other kranky news, on October 2nd the label are to reissue the self-titled LP from Aix Em Klemm, the moniker of the ambient music project consisting of Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid/ A Winged Victory for the Sullen) & Robert Donne (Labradford/Anjou). One track on the Aix Em Klemm album, “Sparkwood and Twenty-One”, was written and recorded in one day. The duo took the mysterious name Aix Em Klemm and the self-titled debut was released in the autumn of 2000. As of late, Wiltzie lives in Brussels, and Donne joined Stars of the Lid on their last tour of Europe in 2016 playing modular synth. They still collaborate musically so new Aix Em Klemm recordings remain a possibility.
