Boomkat Product Review:
**Soured and mesmerizing folk-drone hinting at classic kosmische, current dark Americana and European electro-acoustic music** "Primordial moves and stone cold drones from this New York duo of Taketo Shimada & Tres Warren. Save for a small long gone edition of CDRs, Mirage is the third full-length release by Messages, recorded in 2008 before their first two albums and has remained unreleased until now. This record documents the duo's earliest long form drone explorations and intonations, most of which were recorded during long sessions in Tres' basement bunker in the East Village. Mixing orbits of homemade acoustic instruments, electric drones & percussion, Mirage is a humid transmission sent straight from the womb."
