David Douglas Moon Observations Limited Vinyl LP

This May will see the return of Dutch electronica master / video director David Douglas to Atomnation for his forthcoming album Moon Observations, a natural continuation of 2012′;s EP Royal Horticultural Society. With its powdery blocks of chords and swathes of treated vocals, first single “Higher” gained support by Pitchfork, Xlr8r, Electronic Beats, THUMP, 3voor12, BBC e.a; hailed because of the funkiness, porous synths and the slow-building atmosphere. Inspired by the stories of namesake David Douglas (1799), a Scottish plant hunter who explored North America collecting seeds of plants and trees unknown to mankind at that time, David Douglas (1983) started looking for his own musical roots. The greatness of nature, the sublime mountain landscapes, Icelandic lupine fields, Arctic coastlines and Californian fir forest invigorate his music. With collaborations by Dutch pop legend Blaudzun and Danish folk artist Petter Carlsen, Moon Observations offers a well produced genre mix of electroncia, house, ambient and pop. This album could be this years favourite pick by fans of Caribou, John Talabot, Nicolas Jaar, Royksopp and Tycho.
