To Rococo Rot – Hotel Morgen

Elegant seventh album from German post-rock/electronic trio

Trending Now

Berlin-based To Rococo Rot have been steering a neat course around micro-house, ambient techno and post-rock for nine years, turning out beautifully tailored electronic instrumentals as light and playful as their palindromic name. Hotel Morgen adds percussion, Wurlitzer, grand piano, bass and vibraphone to the usual overheated laptops, synths and samplers to sensuously melodic effect. “Feld”?connecting the dots between Pink Floyd and Orbital?and the languidly grooving “Miss You” are highlights, and Luddites still unconvinced that digital technology is capable of emotional expression should make this their first stop on the road to enlightenment.
