Robert Plant col­lab­o­ra­tor gets ex­per­i­men­tal with Röyk­sopp singer

In­spired by the work of artists such as Miró and Jack­son Pollock, Adams has come up with a cap­ti­vat­ing set of “sound paint­ings” that es­chew rock dy­nam­ics in favour of slowly shift­ing ab­stract pat­terns in which his gui­tar is fil­tered through a poly­chro­matic prism of Ti­nari­wen grooves, Steve Re­ich pulses, gnawa trance rhythms and dron­ing raga loops. Drecker adds tex­ture to the can­vas with word­less vo­cals that evoke Björk at her most au­da­cious and draw on in­flu­ences from Na­tive Amer­i­can chants to Tu­van throat singing.
