After two EPs and live performances, Tokyo Mask presents his first full-length album ‘Hinterlands’. Keeping the basic principles of slow rhythms and deep drones intact, ‘Hinterlands’ adds intricate details and subtleties that reward repeated careful listening. Guitars turned inside-out, mysterious echoes, gloomy drones and minimal dark-hop/dub rhythms are placed around the satisfying rumble of a bass guitar. The minimal approach to composition magnifies each element, turning the slightest change into a radical shift of perspective. An intensely enigmatic, almost mystical feel is at the heart of the album, as it methodically draws the listener into its circle of repetition.
