Dedicated to the memory of Willem Van Spronsen


"...a slow-motion carousel of musical surprises, with each new sound causing you to reconsider the context of what you’ve already heard...'Songs For And About Ghosts' feels like a revelation...because it understands the multivalence of our times, neatly encapsulating the idea that outrage, joy and most every other emotion coexist within a click." - Pitchfork

"At any given moment in this opening cut from Songs For And About Ghosts, you might find yourself lost amid a heavenly choir, halo-jumping into an active feedback volcano or hang-gliding under a celestial matrix of glistening strings and bells. Nonconnah — Tennessee-based married couple Zachary and Denny Corsa — are believers in drone’s positive properties. On “To Follow Us Through Fields of Lightning” they glide into a sort of non-specific shoegaze dreamspace, an area of psychoactive relativity likely to stir different memories in different audiences. One common thread: a cosmic, psychic cleansing." - SPIN's 30 Best Songs Of 2021 (So Far)

"You’ve got to dig down remarkably deep before you even get a sense of where the lower depths of Nonconnah’s Songs For and About Ghosts are located. This is a record which improbably mixes ambient impulses with a much noisier aesthetic and then approaches this recombination as though it were something drawn from a 70s prog album. Passivity isn’t what Nonconnah is peddling here – the songs are fractured into suites of seemingly unrelated sounds that coalesce when you least expect it. I can’t even imagine the pedal setup; it must look like something out of Tetsuo: The Iron Man. These four tracks bloom into a phantasmagoric landscape of daily life. From the smallest detail, such as rearranging the letters on a side table, to more significant events, such as saying “I love you” for the first time to your significant other of only three months, this music captures the minutiae and macrocosms of human reality. Welcome to the soundtrack of your life." - Beats Per Minute's Best Ambient Albums Of 2021

"…achingly beautiful and intricately layered sound collages. When Denny and Zachary are at their best, they are damn near untouchable, as I can think of no one else who so organically blurs together naked beauty, go-for-broke psychotropic brilliance, and immersive textural richness…the Corsas are making some of the most sublime, absorbing, and vividly textured music on earth right now...this is easily one of the finest albums that I have heard this year." - Brainwashed

"The entire album (Songs For And About Ghosts) is a stunning, singular experience, blurring the lines between magical euphoria and soul-crushing despair." - AllMusic

"...they continue creating experimental lo-fi music that pushes boundaries and defies easy categorization. Built from a large cache of effects pedals and treated guitars, loops and samples, a host of unorthodox instruments, and unconventional recording techniques, the music is ambitious and their albums often feel like one continuous movement exploring what feels like an endless amount of possibilities. This is music made for intimate spaces, where you have the time and patience to devote to peeling back its layers and losing yourself inside of them...their third album, Songs For and About Ghosts, feels like a massive leap...the four lengthy suites (and four smaller ones within each of them) carve out a world full of beauty, ripe with a sense of wonder but with a lingering despair...the result is a truly stunning and rewarding experience that amounts to some of their best work yet." - Beats Per Minute

"...the haunting is palpable, even confrontational, as spirals of searing guitars and mangled samples arise like pillars of blackened smoke over an anxious horizon...with the swirling of an infinite eddy that not even death can escape." - The Wire

" almost-visible renewal of energy can be felt, sending seismic shockwaves through the music, which jitters with an uncontrolled excitement, and even joy...a gorgeous record which constantly twinkles and glimmers with sweetness and light." - Fluid Radio

"...the howls of haunted media, fluttery half-recorded-over melodies, an accumulation of memories, the layers of time, a cresting wave of drone, a triumphant song rising up from the beyond...part of the charm of Nonconnah has been the inclusion of Americana thrown into their soup of post-rock, drone, and shoegaze influences." - A Closer Listen

"Fragile bursts of brighter light are found in Nonconnah's music, which is dusted with pixie dust, making her music magical through its strings of folk and kaleidoscopic, lo-fi drowsiness. Songs For And About Ghosts is a magnificent record that constantly sparkles and shines with sweetness and light...Nonconnah are treading on new ground." - Rock Decibels

"A beautiful, multi-varied sound tapestry orchestrated in guitar, synth, effects and technique...quite gorgeous...this may just be their best yet." - ISSUES

​"Nonconnah carve beautiful sonic sculptures from sheets of glacial sound." - Migraine Robot Radio

​"The result is something textured and intricate, but no easier to pin down. Perhaps, in that way, the album’s title is especially fitting, evoking something supernatural and strange, something best glimpsed out of the corner of the eye." - The Memphis Flyer

Nonconnah Memphis, Tennessee

Memphis dronegaze collective. Magpie (mostly guitars) + Denny Corsa (mostly field recordings) + occasionally Blake E. Conley (more guitars) + various accomplices of ill repute. LO-FI + DIY as fuck. Likely too loud for your hip, offbeat night out. Loves 'obsolete' and antiquated technology. Swarming with ghosts at the veil between shadow worlds. A dark elegy for our collapsing sprawlscape dystopia. ... more
