A new and exciting music album has been released by Portland musical project, Ego and The Ids, entitled Almost Masons. This marks their full-length recording debut.

According to project mastermind Gerald del Campo, Ego and the Ids’ new album boasts a sonic pallet of influences the band defines as their own. Also featuring multi-instrumentalist Delonde Bell, whose album Pearls has sold thousands of copies. Gerald del Campo is a veteran of Portland alternative rockers Trick Sensei, who recently released Sessions: Notes from a Free Cascadia.

The group defines their sound as melodic, orchestral, and experimental. Del Campo shares the project’s broader creative ambitions in “using music to evoke mental images of life, death, and everything in between, always taking the time to show the grandeur of the human experience.”

Fans of the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Human Drama, Sisters of Mercy, NIN, and Pink Floyd will find themselves at home listening to Almost Masons. Del Campo describes this music “like nothing you have ever heard before… but strangely familiar.”

To buy this album and/or listen to samples, please visit CD Baby.
