‘To Rococo Rot’ today present the second cut from their new album ‘Instrument’, set for release on July 21st via City Slang.
Over the course of 18 years, Berlin-Duesseldorf trio ‘To Rococo Rot’ have carved an identifiable niche for themselves, and one which has crossed a variety of styles; neither wholly in the realms of ambient or pure electronics. The late 1990s albums of Veiculo and The Amateur View brought their fundamental and innovative landscapes of sound to the fore, whilst 2001’s collaboration with I-Sound,Music is a Hungry Ghost, showed their ability to blend disparate influences into something cohesive. Remixed by Four Tet and Daniel Miller and heralded by the likes of Modeselektor, their influence extends as far as their unique approach deserves.

Last month they revealed the record’s first single ‘Many Descriptions’, and today they follow it with woozy new track ‘Classify’ in which Lindsay appears once more. “I think maybe we’ve come in a way back to where we started. We’ve been through a lot of experimenting, buying new gear, trying this and that with electronic and non-electronic stuff,” says Lippok.
The full track-listing for ‘Instrument’ is as follows…
- Many descriptions (featuring Arto Lindsay)
- Down in the traffic
- Classify (featuring Arto Lindsay)
- Spreading the strings out
- Pro Model
- Longest escalator in the world (featuring Arto Lindsay)
