Swiss trio Sinner DC have spent their entire near 20 year career dodging journalist friendly genre tags and finding themselves roaming freely between expectations with a collection of albums that take in everything from haunting ambience to shoegaze and even the odd Krautrock outing.
Their latest release sees them offer up their 2012 album “Future That Never Happened” for reworkings and the end result is a 12-track affair packed end to end with beautiful ambient outings and electronica entitled “The Ambient Mixes”. Taking the approach of providing an all in one listening experience as opposed to just a collection of reworks it’s a cracking piece of work that recalls the days of classic long-players in the world of ambience.
The album lands on November 17th and you can pre-order over at the Mental Groove Bandcamp.
To get a further taster of the trio’s sound we asked if they’d put together a guest mix. They kindly obliged and delivered a rather lovely 35 minute meandering featuring the likes of Autechre, Spacemen 3, Boards of Canada, Luke Abbott, David Bowie and more.
