Housemeister: Transfer tape

Housemeister: Transfer tape

Housemeister’s last album OP-1 was made entirely on a tiny old sampler that may as well be a toy. What could’ve been a gimmick actually turned out to be a really fun, creative album. His newest release is a hardware-only album which sounds totally different, it’s more downtempo, reflective IDM. Some of it gets sinister and a bit noisy (“Sternenwind”). Other tracks are like Kraftwerk-y electro, but a bit more roughed-up and growly (“We Are Data”). “Multiversum” is kind of both, but prettier. Definitely not what I expected after his last album, but it looks like all his albums are different and leaps in other directions. Quite impressive, this.
