At long last, Ulrich Schnauss is happy to release his latest record, A Long Way to Fall, on Domino Records. The album is the German-born electronic artist’s labor of love, an solo album six years in the making. In honor of the release of the record, Schanuss has made like-minded producer Tycho’s remix of “I Take Comfort In Your Ignorance” available for stream. Take a listen to the track, as well as Ulrich’s original here.
A Long Way to Fall is Schnauss’ fourth album, and finds the artist returning to the punchier rhythms and pronounced lead work of his landmark album, A Strangely Isolated Place. Comprised of ten new recordings, the album is Schnauss’ most varied release to date. The percolating mood piece, “Broken Homes” recalls a more melodic IDM while the frenetic, mesmerizing “The Weight Of Darkening Skies” reaches new heights in tempo never reached before on Ulrich’s previous releases.
The album will be accompanied by a pair of visual pieces from the acclaimed photography and visual art duo of Nat Urazmetova (Hidden Shine) and Anastasija Nikitina for the tracks “A Ritual In Time And Death” and “I Take Comfort In Your Ignorance.” You can watch the first video for “A Ritual In Time and Death here.
NOSTALGHIA’s music is best described in palate form— a vulnerable outpour of elemental, emotional landscape married to a cinema of sound, birthing what is now coined by fans as "post-apocalyptic gypsy punk."
The vulnerable-behind-the-veil, intimate and yet expansive sound of NOSTALGHIA draws comparisons to artists ranging from Nine Inch Nails to Bjork, yet it is unique unto itself.
On recording and in a live-setting, NOSTALGHIA transports it’s audience into a cathartic dimension; it is a journey that not only leads its audience into a spiritual state of feeling, intensity, and passion, but also directly into the face of the unknown.
Across Los Angeles, buzz is building around the performative artistry of this three-piece musical vision.
NOSTALGHIA, through word of mouth alone, is now packing venues and creating an eager amount of excitement for it's growing fan-base. In September 2012, the band was even selected to open for Serj Tankian (System of a Down) at Club Nokia, where they put on a captivating show that left audiences, once more, breathless.
With a new album mixed by multi-platinum producer and mixer Dave Fortman on the way, and an undeniable personal connection with fans, the future burns bright for NOSTALGHIA.
