LP / Wierd Records / 2009


The long-awaited full-length debut album from Xeno & Oaklander is
now available! Functioning as the absolute core of the electronic wing
of the Wierd world since their beginnings in 2004, Miss Liz Wendelbo and
Sean McBride here present a carefully composed, restrained and complex
form of moody electronic pop music that is simultaneously romantically
melancholic and affirmatively aggressive.

Recorded entirely live in the studio with exclusively analogue instruments, Sentinelle situates itself as a series of highly crafted cinematic vignettes which
takes as its vantage point a fictitious era in a long-passed distant
age: a time of wandering desert travelers, forgotten underwater cities,
and exquisitely sculptural objects; of arid land, sea-farers and
ferrymen, blinding light and lonely rooms, precious metals and poisonous
corrosion. Themes of paranoia and disaffection associated with the
transformation felt during the industrial revolution(a stand-in for our
contemporary digital malaise), as well as odes to the many gifts of its
legacy - motion pictures, cameras, synthesizers, and voltage control,
are traversed throughout the epic journey of this minimal electronic
masterpiece, allowing the listener to gaze out of the frozen cold window
onto the many radical paradigm shifts of the twentieth century, and is a
true sonic portrait of this eminently fragile era in transition.
