Hanssen "Solar America"
A long-active member of the Pacific Northwest's electronic music scene, Seattle resident Bob Hansen will issue his debut full-length album as Hanssen later this month (July 28, to be exact) via hometown label Hush Hush. Entitled Seven Years Week, the record is set to explore eight dense electronic hybrids, one of which being "Solar America." Built around a sparse kick-and-snare pattern, "Solar America" is kept buoyant by a seemingly endless stream of synths, its opening arpeggio sequence combined with swirling pads and glassy melodies to result in an expansive landscape of rich electronic tones.
