SIRIUS SIGNALS CD reviewed in THE WIRE by J.Stannard (The Outer Church): “Arruti is responsible for some essential uncanny transmissions and chilly vignettes that certainly fit the hauntological bill… ..Sirius Signals would in fact be an ideal enhancement to any long, dark, lonesome night of the soul.” THE WIRE 405

Interesting hauntological link, after all radio is the “ghost-medium”.(In Memoriam – Mark Fisher : 1968-2017)
