Troum & All Sides - Shutûn
Shutûn is a colossal 54-minute dark ambient track produced as a collaboration between dark ambient duo Troum and shoegaze/ambient guitarist Nina Kernicke (All Sides). I can't think of anything in the dark ambient subgenre that's better than this, to be honest. An epic that builds from ghostly vocal recordings to grand, sweeping movements laden with fuzzy guitar and synth pads to sinister, brooding passages that churn and grind like giant mechanical beasts or something like that.
