Extralife What an adventurous album Mr. Bath has put together here. Here he creates a unique stew of acoustic and electronic sounds -- what makes it amazing is that the sounds fade in and out from each other until you can't discern what is what. This is not strictly an "experimental" album though -- propulsive beats guide each track to a euphoric conclusion.

10/10 Favorite track: Bridges.

about

Missing Organs is Tristan Bath, a British musician and writer based in Vienna, Austria. Old Speakers deploys a bottomless variety of instruments, beats, and techniques, all refined and rewritten - somewhat accidentally - into a document of the period of personal and international upheaval during which they came to life. “This is my Brexit album,” explains Bath, “a document of the dread, quiet chaos, and bitterness in European society which came to the surface in 2016.” Field recordings and improvisations formed the basis of the music, including mountain winds from Upper Austria, a violin furiously scraped on a paranoid evening in South London, rusty ferry engines between Canary Islands, and melodies haphazardly sketched out on lengthy journeys over the continent. As a sonic diary Old Speakers is necessarily filled with fleeting thoughts and psychedelic jump cuts, assembled around industrial strength beats and rusty structures into a bleak journey through the psyche of the artist.
