SYNOPSIS:

“DIE! GOLDSTEINs debut album Dystopia/Utopia invites the listener to join his beautiful progression from dark and desperate dystopian states through mal-topia and hope to finally arrive at an enlightened, utopian present. Mirrored in alternating states of the human mind, DIE! GOLDSTEIN offers a harsh but hopeful journey of human experience, incorporating pressing political and societal issues through global imagery. A terrifying and encouraging experimental visual post rock shoegaze drone noise experience, following a dystopian utopian cinematographic soundscape.”
