Experimental producer Tim Hecker will release the follow-up to his critically acclaimed album Love Streams next Friday. The LP is called Konoyo and it was recorded in Japan alongside the Tokyo Gakuso ensemble that works in the classical Japanese musical form known as gaguku. We’ve already heard a few singles including “This Life” and “Keyed Out.”
Today, Hecker debuted the full stream of Konoyo on NPR. You can listen to it here. Back in 2016, when Love Streams debuted, we ranked Hecker’s albums from worst to best. Where do you think Konoyo fits?
Konoyo is out 9/28 via Kranky.
