German ambient artist Christian Grothe (who works under the pseudonym, Kryshe) is set to release his next lp, Hauch, at the end of the month via Serein records.
A whitecap of nocturnal atmosphere, the album’s title track unfolds reflexively. Minimal music, the composition is spatially lit by Grothe’s restrained trumpet and instinctual homespun production. Far from scattershot, recorded straight to analog tape, the digitally manipulated fragments possess an aural, naturalistic, warmth.
In Kryshe’s case, the inevitable Budd/Eno comparisons are not without merit . . .
