Admlithi - Tyrants
Tryants had an interesting beginning. The Scottish artist who now records and performs as Admlithi had given up music. But a chance discovery of an '80 keyboard in a trash bin inspired him to create a party album in honor of Prince. However, the twin occurrences of the right-ward shift of politics and a diagnosis of adult autism led him down a different path. Working in his bedroom (except for some field recordings), Admlithi created a cinematic darkwave tapestry -- grand in scale, emotional in content. Put on your earphones and dive into the swirling shadows, it is a surprisingly rewarding journey. And no, it isn't a party album. But we think Prince, a man who thrived on inspiration and invention, would heartily approve.
Tyrants is out now in digital and CD formats via Armellodie Records.
