Android Lust begins campaign for sixth albumExperimental industrial act Android Lust has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Berlin, the second volume of Crater; this follows the 2013 release of Crater Vol. 1. Berlin: Crater Vol. 2 marks the artist’s sixth album overall, and her third to be funded via Kickstarter. In a slight departure from the heavier electronic sound of past Android Lust albums, the new record will be composed of ambient sound recordings in Berlin; “I want to walk the streets of Berlin with my portable recorder and soak up the ambient sounds,” states Android Lust’s Shikhee; “I want to place my contact mics on the surface of historic structures and pick up their resonance. I want to bring all these sounds and experiences back with me to my studio and give you a new album.” On the choice of Berlin, Shikhee cites such influences as Einstürzende Neubauten and the David Bowie/Brian Eno trilogy, saying, “There’s a sense of history and fearless experimentation that has been calling to me.”
Shikhee also says of the inspiration behind Berlin, “I’ve been experimenting with location recording for a while, and it’s something I’ve wanted to delve deeper into. But it wasn’t until I was in Nepal earlier this year and recorded a group of monks chanting in Nagarkot that the idea really hit me — I needed to combine the experience of discovering new places, capturing sonic snapshots of that place and time, and base the record around that!”

    Shikhee has one of the best ears in the industrial/ambient scene. Every track is new and surprising in all the right ways.
