Electric Sunset on a Desolation Wilderness

31 May

“We’re over! Go home!”

Although Desolation Wilderness broke the hearts of thousands with that message back in February, Nic Zwart will continue on as Electric Sunset on the K Records roster.

Electric Sunset

The instruments of Desolation Wilderness’ droned and garbled pop-fuzz sonic arrangements are now supplemented (and often replaced) with Electronic Sunset’s gadgetry. The result is stupefyingly similar to DW while now camping out with the likes of Caribou and Neon Indian. The density and brightness of DW’s music still wrestles and frolics with one another in Electronic Sunset, but the forces are amplified with the coldness  and limitlessness of the electronic production.

Electric Sunset will make its debut release in September 2010. Listen here.
