**The tenth installment in Geographic North’s long-running Sketch for Winter series, which highlights compositions intentionally crafted for the colder season.**

With Immortal Word, David Jacober, Dope Body drummer and Baltimore percussive extraordinaire, returns to the gleefully eerie apparitional atmospheres first excised on his Geographic North debut, The Gray Man in 2015. On this tenth installment of the Sketch for Winter series - highlighting compositions intentionally crafted for the colder season - Jacober sets gaze to the sea, beachcombing his way through frigid fog and frosted flotsam to cull 6 new songs of hypnotized hauntology effortlessly blending climatic bombast with the tranquilizing harmonics of marimba.

Immortal Word opens with “Four Horsemen”, rippling across an incoming tide of bubbling, frothing percussion and mirthful melody. “Toast” breaks through the misting, overcast skies with a pulsing, sifting rhythm and wide-eyed optimism. The album’s namesake, “Immortal Word” turns that positivity inward, exploring a pile of tuneful textures and playful phrases.

On the B-side, “Flashbacking” wafts through a vacated, shadow-lined boardwalk in a euphoric daze of unhurried movement. The cold gust that is “Witching Hours” reels itself upward in a reversed rain of dripping tones. Closer “Universal Sign” makes calm space to host a sort of moonlit seance, decked in a wistful cloud of peripheral synesthesia.
