Listen by Harmonious Thelonious
Released: Jan 2012
While most of Stefan Schwander's projects (Antonelli, Repeat Orchestra, A Rocket In Dub) have focused on dubby techno and house, his Harmonious Thelonious alias captures the bright sonics and interlocking rhythms of Afro-Caribbean music as projected through the prism of classical American minimalism. He's turned down the distortion since 2010's Talking, which sounded like Konono No. 1 playing through The Jesus and Mary Chain's busted amps; "Drums of Steel" and "A.O." remain exhilaratingly overdriven, but elsewhere his mallets, synths and drum machines are as glassy as a slow-moving stream.
