For the new collaborative album Elements Of Light, the Berlin minimal techno master Pantha Du Prince joined forces with the Bell Laboratory, a group of Norwegian musicians who focus on ringing percussive instruments like bells and marimba. Together, they’ve made a deeply pretty album that seamlessly marries chiming acoustic instruments to electronic thumps and burbles. We’ve already posted early single “Photon,” and now the whole thing is streaming online. If you’re having a stressful Monday afternoon, it will chill you the fuck out. Listen to it at NPR.
Elements Of Light is out 1/15 on Rough Trade.
