TRISTES TROPIQUES

Hypnotic and melancholy-soaked, Tristes Tropique presents a luxuriant yet downcast tone, drawing comparisons to the eerie,

transportive work of The Fun Years, The Gentleman Losers and Ian William Craig.

This is no better exemplified than on single ‘Suvarnabhumi’, in which sparse, yearning guitar figures are subsumed by ethereal synths. Sinister yet alluring, these musical environments throb with sensuality, danger and promise. Tobias seeks to evoke far-flung places where indigenous cultures have either vanished or are in the process of being swallowed up by an ever-expanding global civilization - hiddenshoal.com

MOONCHY & TOBIAS III

Vocal by Pat Moonchy/ Music by Todd Tobias

Moonchy & Tobias' third album is an immersive soundtrack to uncanny dreams, soaked in melancholy and longing. Moonchy’s vocals, mostly sung in Latin, thread through Tobias' nocturnal atmospheres like smoke. As Moonchy explains, “When I sing in Latin it feels like discovering the details of ancient lives lost in time.”

SAMSARA by The World Of Dust

Vocal by Stefan Breuer/ Music by Todd Tobias

A shadowy universe of forlorn beauty, this lo-fi bedroom pop experiment is shrouded in elemental imagery and laden with ennui. Intimate and wistful, Samsara mines a similarly rich emotive seam to Mount Eerie, Sparklehorse, Low and Pedro the Lion.
