Description

The otherworldly yet lifelike �The New Today� is 2562�s fourth album and presents his first new material in this guise since 2012�s �Air Jordan� EP, which was also self-released on his When In Doubt imprint. Check!As with that last EP, �The New Today� was sketched out during a trip abroad - a six week stay in New York in late summer 2013 - and later arranged at his home studio in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Composed as a narrative collage drawing upon and splicing from an eclectic library of early European synth experiments, new age tapes, musique concr�te, krautrock, post punk, obscure electro-pop and other largely forgotten and out of print music, �The New Today� loosely references the novel of ideas tradition of writing as a restless, eight-track drift bolstered and propelled by his signature texturhythms. From the humid concr�te drone sphere of �Arrival� through the hypnotising gyrations of �Terraforming�, to the airborne rhythmelodies and mercurial syncopation of �Vibedoctor� and centrepiece �Utopia�, the tension and conflict of aural assault �Drumroll� and ultimately the celestial sweep of closing chapter, �New Life�, it�s equally the most diffuse, cohesive and involving LP in his celebrated cache.
