Matt Bachmann: "Wave Hello" stream & Walking Preference CS pre-order 12 Apr 2019

On May 10, Orindal Records will release Walking Preference, an album of new age instrumental music by Matt Bachmann (Mega Bog, Hand Habits, Big Eater). Brooklyn Vegan premiered the lead-off track, "Wave Hello," which you can listen to above.

Walking Preference expands on the sound vs song work explored on previous Bachmann solo releases, like 2018's Unconditonal Love & earlier ambient experiments. Recorded almost entirely on a Roland JX-3P, a Yamaha digital piano & a D.I. guitar, Walking Preference inhabits an animated universe inspired by Miyazaki films & Nintendo fantasies — a world both natural & unreal. Air & space have been carefully manufactured. The playful drones & compositions within are full of bubbles and sharp turns while still adhering to the core tenants of Bachmann’s sound— that of beauty & space. Bachmann’s music is more sky than earth. Walking Preference zooms out.

Walking Preference is the second tape in Orindal's ongoing series of instrumental "Unguided Meditation Tapes" following Robert Stillman's Portals.

Matt Bachmann will perform as part of an Orindal showcase on June 30 in Brooklyn, NY, sharing the bill with Advance Base, Moon Racer & Claire Cronin. You'll find tickets & more info on the tour date page.
