The first volume of Encyclopedia Asthmatica, released in 2008, captured a chapter of Asthmatic Kitty’s lifespan, a golden-era DIY video spontaneity but in other ways rough and untried.

The second volume of the the Encyclopedia Asthmatica, which the label will release later this year, picks up where the previous volume left off, but demonstrates a new level of sophistication in its visualizations. It blasts off into space to chart the boundless cosmos of the World of Asthmatica. Previously uncharted constellations are revealed in their strange and complex beauty. The Denture Nebula, the Totem Grandus, Camp Fire Tangle, and many others are mapped to capture the ethereal sounds and sights the Asthmatica family.

Equal parts celestial guide and family photo album, Encyclopedia Asthmatica Vol. 2 shows the growth and maturing of each family member in their musical efforts while upping the ante on its visual representations. We hope you will add this to your collection as a reference resource for audio and eye delights.

This collection includes videos from most of the Asthmatic Kitty family, including Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond (including new previously unreleased video), DM Stith, Fol Chen, Castanets, Jookabox and more!
