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

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. 


 

The debut album from the duo of Italian vocalist

Moonchy and American musician Tobias is a darkly

playful psychedelic ride through ever-changing

musical landscapes.

From hiddenshoal.com:

Musician Todd Tobias (USA) and vocalist Chloë March (England) have joined to create 'Amialluma'; an album that dances between the earthly and heavenly. Inspired by a mythical story outlined by Tobias, with each piece of music marking a chapter in the tale, vocalist March entered a process of improvisation and developed a lyrical world of word-invention sung into archaic lullabies. The theme centers around a child’s journey from the safety of its mother’s arms through an ancient, shadowy world. Overcoming fear and meeting with otherworldly guides, the child finds independence and reveals a deep connection with nature.
