No Highs

Kyotofu No Highs grew on me in a fantastic way. When it hits, Tim's music speaks to me on a very profound emotional level ; i feel the sounds through my entire body. I really view it as a conversation that uncovers something special for each listener. At first i found this album to be too simple, but No Highs reminded me that there can be an astonishingly poignant depth in even the most minimalist patterns. The flow from track to track is quite superb. Favorite track: Pulse Depression.

bradymatteson Tim Hecker takes everyone to fucking class yet again, to show us all how it's done. HE NEVER MISSES! Favorite track: Anxiety.

Dawid Scumwalski Another exceptional Tim Hecker release. This time it feels a bit more intimate, subdued, and minimal than his previous productions. At the same time however, it does carry an ineffable depth and plenty of tension. Excellent work, as always.

The latest by Canadian composer Tim Hecker serves as a beacon of unease against the deluge of false positive corporate ambient currently in vogue. Whether taken as warning or promise, No Highs delivers – this is music of austerity and ambiguity, purgatorial and seasick. A jagged anti-relaxant for our medicated age, rough-hewn and undefined.

Morse code pulse programming flickers like distress signals while a gathering storm of strings, noise, and low-end looms in the distance. Processed electronics shiver and shudder against pitch-shifting assemblages of crackling voltage, mantric horns (including exquisite modal sax by Colin Stetson), and cathedral keys. Throughout, the pieces both accrue and avoid drama, more attuned to undertow than crescendo. Hecker mentions “negation” as a muse of sorts – the sense of tumult without bombast, tethered ecstasies, an escape from escapism. His is an antagonism both brusque and beguiling, devoid of resolution, beckoning the listener ever deeper into its greyscale alchemies of magisterial disquiet.

Tim Hecker Los Angeles, Chile

Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch. ... more
