This man can do no wrong.
No, honestly he can’t. Simply put, Scott Hansen, known in the music world as Tycho, is an artist.
As with his earlier titles, including Dive and Past Is Prologue, Tycho’s latest album Awake maintains the San Francisco producer’s signature ambient sound, and after his three-year break from recording, reminds us that there is beauty in the simple things in life.
He has managed to create original tracks with this sound, compiled together in a smoothly linked album. Because whether it’s easing into your morning peacefully, practicing yoga or doing a last minute essay for uni, there is no wrong way to experience this music.
However, the genre is not for everyone. Unlike his past albums, Awake is stripped back with no vocal layers, focusing instead on the simple, looping guitar riffs. For those with short attention spans, Awake is not for the foreground.
The album is a work that should be experienced in full and is a great start to the day, true to its name. Listen here:
Keep in the loop for upcoming music and concerts here. Us Aussies can only hope that one day soon Tycho extends his tour to our borders!
