With his upcoming fourth album Awake, San Francisco-based producer Scott Hansen (a.k.a. Tycho) infused his purely electronic compositions with more organic live instrumentation. We’ve heard the beguiling results with album singles “Awake” and “Montana”, and today he amps up those efforts with “Spectre”.
Though still indebted to the dreamy soundscapes of ambient music, Hansen employs layers of guitars that are so warm and vibrant and texturized they practically have a heartbeat. Listen in below (via Stereogum).
Awake is due out March 18th via Ghostly International.
