Led by the core duo of drummer Eric J. Breitenbach and multi-instrumentalist Greg Valou, New Age Doom have released their sophomore album, Himalayan Dream Techno, out now. It was an open-ended, organic, and intuitive process between collaborators; one without plans or discussions. They are joined by Gregory Macdonald AKA “ColaWars” (Limblifter, Sloan) on analog synthesizer and Tim Lefebvre (Donny McCaslin, David Bowie’s Blackstar) on analog synthesizers and upright bass. The resulting record, dense with rolling percussion, lush synths, and tube amplifier feedback, is a sonic dreamscape that bursts with serenity and chaos in equal measure.
