Introducing: Material / Show October 1
It’s been a minute since we heard from Orchard Thief’s Sam Molstad or Maymok’s Tim Krause, but a few years back they were each producing some of our favorite local tunes on a regular basis. That’s why its pretty exciting to hear that they have teamed up on a new project together entitled Material! They currently have a couple albums out (2016’s debut totally flew under our radar) including this year’s Materials which was self-released earlier this month.
Anyone who is a fan of either Molstad or Krause (or both) would probably find Material’s sound to be familiar: a very chilled out and atmospheric weaving of electronic and krautrock textures that finds a nice groove on the spectrum between ambient and dance. In their own words they “hope to explore tension in the cluster of moving pieces and then the relief (unease) upon the peel back of the layers. An ebb and flow, a yin and yang, to climb the ladder you must also climb back down.”
You can stream Materials below and if you dig it you can catch Krause and Molstad at their kick off show (as well as the start of their upcoming tour) which will take place on Tuesday, October 1st at the Eagles Club (info).
