One of our Albums Of The Year back in 2015, Will Samson’s Ground Luminosity was a delicate and brooding beast, an inspired concoction of tender vocals and swelling electronic ambiance that stirred something magical within those that found their way to it. Wonderful news then that Samson today returns with “Welcome Oxygen“, the first track to be heard from his brand new album of the same name which will be released on 8th of September, via Talitres.
This album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden on Dec 4-6th, 2015. This session was less improvised but recorded in several improvised layers with a few special guests joining in as well. The music is much more synthesizer based with KG playing amazing 70s inspired synths and organ, as well as bass, guitar, and sitar. Dr Space creating spacey sounds and drones, while Love performed a spoken word, and providing all the drum and percussion parts. The addition of Violin and Santoor really took the two Indian inspired pieces (Khan Paan, Øscilations in D-Minor) to another level. A fantastic instrumental, Kraut inspired ethnic musical journey!
