Those who are fans of Joseph Shabason’s work with Destroyer, War on Drugs, and DIANA might not know that his true musical love is synth drones and instrumental ambience. Shabason crafted one of 2017’s most daring yet palatable avant-garde releases, with Aytche, which tackled subjects like The Holocaust, assisted suicide, and terminal disease. Shabason has somehow made an ambient album that is as melodic, lush, and beautiful as it is formless and strange.
