For Fans Of: Matt and Kim, Gardens and Villa, Yellow Ostrich, Reptar, White Arrows, School Of Seven Bells
New York based musician Oberhofer recently announced his forthcoming record and shared the first single “Memory Remains”, which Stereogum called “a big, bold gesture that makes for a grand reintroduction” (see here). Now comes the next track, the equally epic “White Horse Black River”, premiering today at Consequence of Sound. Oberhofer’s new sophomore album, Chronovision, is out on August 21st via Glassnote Records. Listen to the new track below.
Chronovision features his signature amped psych-pop with orchestral flourish, New Wave flare, and grungy fuzz, but multiplied with his intensity that only time and life’s gut checks can enhance. The road to Chronovision was winding, owing to Oberhofer’s resolve to produce the LP himself and initially taking him from the Catskills to Seattle and back. A final spurt brought him to a studio in his hometown of Tacoma, two NYC facilities (Strange Weather, Electric Lady), and the former Sound City in Los Angeles. Lastly: Atlanta to mix with Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Washed Out). Exactly 106 demos later, Oberhofer emerged with these 12 songs. Peep the album cover art and tracklisting here.
