New Album from Erik Nilsson in July


Hearing Things, the new album by  Swedish neo-classical ambient artist Erik Nilsson, will see release on 30th July through Hidden Shoal.

Drawing on folk, classical and electronica, Erik Nilsson blends acoustic instruments with field recordings and computergenerated sounds, crafting music akin to early Four Tet, Tortoise at their most minimal, and fellow Scandinavian soundscapers The Gentleman Losers. His Hidden Shoal debut Hearing Things advances the compositional strategy Nilsson first explored on his acclaimed debut Recollage: simple rhythmic and melodic elements are manipulated and recontextualised into richly textured, emotive pieces.
