Haunting Stuff

"Helena" from the artist Oberlin

“Helena” is the center-most track of the 11 that comprise Übersee, a new album by Oberlin, the name under which Alexander Holtz records. The full album is on Bandcamp. This piece was uploaded to SoundCloud as an example. Its six minutes are like a premonition transformed into sound. It’s haunting stuff, all tunnel wind and interference hum, beats no louder than a pin prick, and no less sharp.
