Today, Anthony Naples’ Incienso label released Marco Shuttle’s new single ‘Acrobat’ taken from Shuttle’s third album Cobalt Desert Oasis, out mid-October.
His new album Cobalt Desert Oasis follows two previous albums, one of those on Donato Dozzy’s Spazio Disponibile and another on his very own Eerie imprint.
Known for his meticulously organic and trippy trademark sounds, Shuttle’s new full-length features eleven tracks recorded across a two-year period. The album is rich in complex rhythmics, and more than any of his previous work has strong acoustic elements. Amongst other percussion instruments, Marco used the Tombak, a traditional Persian hand drum capable of reaching a very wide range of frequencies – from deep round subby toms to high pitched sharp rimshots, throughout the record.
An artist not new to these sorts of elements, but in Cobalt Desert Oasis he brings the environmental element of his sound into the forefront in a way that takes the listener into a hazy expanse where it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the machine elements from the natural – and where the music almost becomes a visual experience, which relates to Marco’s own photography used throughout the cover and inserts images.
‘Cobalt Desert Oasis’ is out October 15th via Incienso and is available to pre-order on Bandcamp.
