Benedikt Frey's debut LP will drop on October 6 via Lovefingers' LA-based ESP Institute.

The album, which was produced over the course of two years, follows a string of standout EPs for labels such as Live At Robert Johnson, Crème Organization, and Hivern Discs, and like much of his output—and ESP Institute's, for that matter—it's a borderless fusion of mind-bending sonics. Although the 11 tracks don't adhere to one formula or style, the album's narrative unfolds as a coherent-yet-complex whole, dragging the listener through haunting atmospheres and stirring electronics that touch on post-punk, techno, trip-hop, and new wave, all the while sounding like a genre of its own.

Ahead of the release—you can pre-order it here—Frey and ESP Institute have offered up a full stream of "Private Crimes," available to stream via the player below.
