Andrew Pekler returns with his newest album, Tristes Tropiques, on Jan Jelinek's Faitiche imprint. Pekler's captivating oeuvre of otherworldly soundscapes has seen releases on labels such as Senufo Editions, Dekorder, and Kranky. Andrew Pekler's palate possesses an ability to transport the listener into obscure realms. Tristes Tropiques is a fully conceived sonic environment, elaborate drones hum in the background as a spectral presence emerges from beneath the textured layers. In the video for “Bororo,” Pekler harmoniously melds visual with aural. Close-up imagery of plants, a layered patchwork of vascular fibers weaving in and out of each other. Distorted and colorized in a way that makes them seem almost alien. This thread of shifting perception is a continual theme in Pekler's work, evolving instinctively while still maintaining a cognitive imbalance.
