Double bass player and electronic producer Otto Lindholm comes to light with his project and debut LP simply called 'Otto Lindholm' is released on Icarus Records | Vynilla Vinyls.
In the mood of bands and projects as Mohammad (Pan) or James Ginzburg & Yair Elazar Glotman' Nimbes for Subtext, Otto Lindholm debut LP proposes an intense and noir three track LP, comprised by stand-alone experiments coming from a unique producing process elaborated by the artist where each track was played and recorded in one shot. The double bass dialogues in the dark with blinking analogue machines creating beatless but dynamic music, fully habited by plate-shifting bass drones.

Listening to a Tim Hecker album is rarely ever a time to skip between songs or chose one track in the middle to start things off. Saying that, This Life is a perfect way to begin this audio experience. What I love most about this album though is how Tim seems to be evolving as a musician, patiently honing his skills, and fine tuning his craft. His works improve with each progressive album, while new experiments are woven into the tracks, he still manages to retain his signature sound. Jon Vassa
