Francis Harris Prepping Collaborative Album As Aris Kindt



Eclectic collectors’ favourite Francis Harris has announced that he – with the aid of frequent collaborator and longtime friend, guitarist Gabe Hedrick – is to release a new album under his Aris Kindt alias. The follow up to last years mightily impressive ‘Minutes of Sleep’ album for his own revered Scissor & Thread imprint, the New Yorker has now revealed he’ll be offering up seven original cuts for his label with the Floods LP.

Scheduled to arrive November 16th, the forthcoming album promises to showcase “dense layers of noise, brittle beats and found sounds” within a crepuscular haze and takes inspiration from author W.G. Sebald’s profound interpretation of Rembrandt’s 1632 master work, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.

Recorded over the course of a year using a vintage 808, a modular eurorack and two
guitars before being mixed at the Keyclub Recording Company with engineer Bill Skibbe the album is billed as charting new territory for both Harris and Hedrick, “melding a long history with electronic music and youthful love for indie noise, weaving in and out of near silence and sheering walls of sound with a gentle and constant heartbeat at its core.”
