I'm super excited to announce the first Safety release of 2015, Pronouncement, an album by a new project called Contretemps. The first of several instrumental electronic projects I've been working on, this one is by far the most adventurous, a clear departure from the last 6 years of melodic pop I've channeled as City States.
If you're a fan of Oneohtrix Point Never, Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works II, Merzbow, or Fennesz, you'll probably enjoy it. Here's a track from the album, "Telemusik."
Available March 24th on high-quality MP3. Tracklist:
04. Dear Masami
05. Borderless Regions
06. Zoviet Synths
09. An Impasse
10. Tyranny of the Beat
A few months back I wrote a bit about the making of Pronouncement in a post on the City States blog; I'm going to elaborate on that a little more in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy the new track (and let me know what you think!)
