Hi everyone. There is a new September 8th release to announce and accept pre-orders for starting today! Cinematic, profound and absorbing. PYRIT is the solo project of Swiss German Thomas Kuratli. This first album is the musical expression of an original literary project: the story of a journey into the body – dissolving to universe and transforming into an extraterrestrial machine.
Recorded in a parking lot , this album is full of ideas and vivid emotions while definitely pushing the limits of the oneman band. After moving from Zurich to Paris, Thomas started to work at his debut album UFO, originally drawn from Pyrit’s love of electronic, psychedelic and kraut he creates soundscapes of a deserted concrete- world, destruction and loneliness. Sometimes there is a glimpse of hope, sometimes there is not. Pyrit’s music is simultaneously loud and fragile, complex and simple, and always evolving.
Navigating between electronic psyche, gaunt blues and the soundtrack of a weightless film, Thomas exposes himself by donning the costume of a disenchanted crooner in search of the ultimate slow.
Appealing to fans of Low, David Lynch, Portishead and Kanye West’ Yeezus, this is an album you will certainly want to check out. A video for the powerful song, Dirt On the Ground, is up on youtube here – Dirt On The Ground Video and a full album visual stream with lyrics is available here: Full Album Stream
Originally pressed by Bookmaker Records in France, the limited pressing quickly sold out. Now repressed as a split collaboration between Robotic Empire in the US and Bookmaker in France, with freshly remastered audio specific to the more widespread vinyl release and upgraded packaging with 180 gram black vinyl and a high quality digital download included.
On a personal note, I feel UFO is one of the most captivating and original albums I’ve heard in a long time. I get goosebumps listening to this album and in my excitement over this re-release I’m offering a FREE Robotic Empire – Hawks T-shirt to anyone pre-ordering the Pyrit album. Just put your shirt size in the notes when placing the order!
In addition to the Pyrit pre-orders there’s a nice little distro update that goes along with it.
