Music: Andrew Pekler – Sounds From Phantom Islands

Berlin-based experimental electronic producer Andrew Pekler comes through with a brand new album titled Sounds From Phantom Islands. The project contains 10 tracks, which were created over the last three years for the interactive website Phantom Islands – A Sonic Atlas.

The results from this experiment are quite spectacular, with gorgeous field recordings that capture a moody, tribal and soulful atmosphere. The soothing opener “Approximate Bermeja”  features synths and subtle percussion that build and create this atmospheric tone that is present throughout the entire album. “Los Jardines” is a track I particularly like for its forest sound samples and the soothing feeling I get from it. “Description of Rain (Over Frisland)” feels like a rain-sampled track, with it’s meditative vibe throughout that just captures my imagination. “Onaseuse / Crespo / Rica de Oro” is a glittery and somewhat unsettling track, with its quiet tone and mysterious samples. “Tuanahe” closes the album out with a subtle and beautiful atmospheric sound that is calming and emotive. Overall, Andrew Pekler comes through with an impressive selection of tracks that really captivate me in a different type of way. It’s the subtle energy and meditative atmosphere that makes it such an intriguing listen.
