The debut album from Berlin-based electronic artist Matthias Grübel, aka Phon°noir. Summoning insight by loading arbitrarily recorded noise bits and sampled sounds from daily life into a drum computer, Grübel located a unique sound built from broken rhythms. Creating its own sphere between clicks'n'cuts and songwriting, Putting Holes Into October Skies is an intimate record, inviting you to enter fragile little soundscapes in a charming less-is-more-mode. Ethereal guitars meet warm lo-fi-electronics, accompanied by Grübel's haunting vocals, forming sixteen melancholic tracks, as comforting as the end of a long winter. Playful yet broken, distraught and despairing, but always with a chink of light hiding around a forgotten corner. Almost pop, but not quite.
