Excerpted (both and above) from Tinymixtapes review of R.I.P. by Actress. The quote from  Heidegger is out of The Origin of the Work of Art (aka Der Ursprung des Kunstwerkes). Ian Latta concludes the review writing “All of the euphoria is happening somewhere else…it also reminds us that Eden is securely locked.
