Huge sounding twin release from Vancouver’s KR75 (Kristen Roos and Kristen Rattray), the duo behind last year's stunning Hello Machine cassette & video release. Largely devoid of the usual genre signifiers, while at the same time eerily reminiscent of certain 'artificial intelligence' era productions, Ondular cements the group's minimalist approach to electronic improvisation.
Both tracks performed in a single take - no DAW, no overdubs, no post-production, just people and machines interacting in real time. An accurate representation of the KR75 live experience, and a must for fans of early Skam/Warp.
“Ondular” finds the Kristens in a shimmery, pulsating mood as they wrangle their gear to spit out some of the most lovely and languid electronic music you’re bound to hear this side of Warp Records. Each lengthy side is a vast trip through ethereal and nocturnal landscapes, like liquid electricity through subterranean switches and transformers. - Tabs Out
