Aidan Baker (Nadja, B/B/S/) joins forces with Idklang aka Markus Steinkellner for two epic instrumentals, melting ambient, drone, and krautrock into a psychedelic trip of pure beauty. Baker has proven himself one of the most productive and versatile artists in post-rock, drone, and ambient music. Since his beginnings in the early millennium, the guitarist has released numerous albums with his duo Nadja, Caudal, B/B/S/, and solo and in various collaborations with artists like Tim Hecker, thisquietarmy, or Troum, documented on labels such as Alien8, Important, or Miasmah. In The Red Room presents Baker, living in Berlin at the time of its release, in a duo constellation with Idklang (guitar), member of Jakuzi's Attempt and Arktis/Air, who has also worked with Acid Mothers Temple, Ava Mendoza, and Eugene S. Robinson (Oxbow). With their guitars and effects the two create a gentle yet uncanny ambience that unfolds in two epic pieces, each clocking in at around 20 minutes. As often with Baker's music, In The Red Room transgresses genres and instead melts their diverse elements into one: ambient's detailed sound design is paired with drone's experimental guitar approach and krautrock's repetition for a psychedelic excursion of pure beauty. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl; presented in silkscreened sleeve; includes download code. Limited to 300 copies.
