World 2 03:20


Longtime Aotearoa/New Zealand producer Kraus has been a fixture in various underground North and South Island circles for 20 years, and his solo music has covered a lot of ground in that time. In recent years he’s shifted focus from guitar-based recordings to synthesis-oriented electronic work; an approach that blooms in full color on Fire! Water! Air! Kraus!, his 19th full-length album and first all-electronic affair.

Kraus obsessives will once more revel in the inventive use of melody and texture, as well as the primitive futurist fusion of eastern/western psychedelia. Tonal explorations of electronic pioneers like Suzanne Ciani and Laurie Spiegel and careening synth pop of Martin Rev also feature heavily.

Fire! Water! Air! Kraus! is a joyful, immersive listen ,and we’re thrilled to share it with the known universe.
