Legowelt presents Star Shepard with a fresh LP

If you thought you heard it all get ready for the Star Shepherd! 

If your an avid fol­low­er of Legow­elt you will know recent­ly he built his own syn­the­sis­er which after some feed­back was named The Star Shep­ard”. The intrigu­ing and elu­sive synth was made from old gui­tar ped­als, FX and EQ box­es, a small AM radio and a 1981 Casio 403 key­board and plays a very cen­tral role in the cre­ation of his lat­est album Cur­rent Explo­rations In Star Syn­the­sis”. Join­ing the Legow­elt camp under this new alias are fel­low artists hail­ing from The Hague Baglover. 

Across 11 tracks the trio put the new build to good work pro­duc­ing all types of shapes and flavours From sing-a-long exis­ten­tial­ist exot­i­ca to pow­er-noise ambi­ent to wooly hyp­not­ic sat­u­rat­ed melodies”. The label writes, embrace this new dawn in lo-fi counter cul­ture syn­the­sis and wash your virtues away!”. As you can usu­al­ly expect with Legow­elt the detail goes far beyond the music, the track titles them­selves tell a whole sto­ry and the visu­al rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the water­colour paint­ed art­work also has a lot to offer. 

Cur­rent Explo­rations In Star Syn­the­sis is out now via his own imprint Nightwind Records. Get a taste below!
