Akkord - Hex_ad [Houndstooth] by HoundstoothLBL published on 2013/11/13 16:42:34 +0000 Akkord - Akkord is out now. Order your copy direct from Houndstooth: http://bit.ly/HTH015 or iTunes: http://smarturl.it/HTH015 Following a pair of highly sought-after white labels and the superb Navigate EP, Akkord return to Houndstooth with their self-titled debut album. Akkord began as a shadowy collective with an espoused passion for mathematics and sacred geometry, crafting intelligent and beautifully oppressive electronic music. Eventually revealed as a collaboration between experienced Mancunian bass producers Synkro and Indigo, 'Akkord' blurs the lines between junglist revivalism, smoky ambience, and suctioned dub, with a consistently engaging pulse linking the styles. Carefully arranged and achieving maximum impact on a proper soundsystem, Akkord have turned in an ominous and daring debut LP. Previews of each track on the album will be revealed during the weeks leading up to the release via akkordmusik.net and other sources. The album is available on double LP, cut to heavyweight 180g vinyl by mastering engineer of the year, Matt Colton, CD and digital.
