Alexander Albrecht aka Melquíades to release EP, Blue Caves, on Scissor & Thread


New York-based record label Scissor & Thread’s next release will come from Alexander Albrecht aka Melquíades.

The Melbourne-based composer and producer first solo offering, ‘Blue Caves’ is a five-track “exercise in deep and meditative atmospheres” that is boundary-pushing and fully in keeping with the label’s approach.

The new release builds on the wonderful ambient soundscapes created on the ‘Tidal River’ album he recently released as part of the Albrecht La’Brooy duo.

Listen to ‘Morning Breeze’ a track that seems to revel in the evocative nature of its title, with hand played percussion backing more wistful, emotive piano sketches and wandering bass notes before the track settles into a hypnotic groove.

A quality piece of work that gets better with each and every listen.
