More Info

"Rishaug's music is informed by classic minimal
composers such as Steve Reich and Terry Riley as well as 90's electronica acts such as the
Oval/Microstoria axis and like-minded but more
obscure artists associated with the Mille
Plateaux label (remember Neina?) but surely
wouldn't be out of place on a contemporary label like Kranky or Type.
Repetitive and seemingly simple melodic patterns are combined with (and sometimes obscured by) decaying monlithic drone layers creating a hazy melancholic landscape slowly unfolding its beauty. Granular shoegazy tones are building up in slow-motion recalling the patient yet precise and complex drone works of Stephan Mathieu, William Basinski and Machinefabriek's Dauw album." [label info]


"A contender for album of the year status in my
opinion; truly engaging and explorative, this is a refined and immersive work." (Future Sequence)
