Calling the upcoming second album from German DJ/producer Shed "highly anticipated" seems like a complete understatement at this point. After the dust settled from his 2008 debut album on Ostgut Ton, the momentum has been gradually rebuilding behind producer Rene Pawlowitz's follow-up record, The Traveller, in the form of interviews, podcasts, and now, a stream of the whole record, courtesy of FACT. Fourteen brooding tracks of lush techno (and even dubstep!) experimentation make up Shed's sophomore album, which sounds at times like Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works or Autechre's Tri Repetae and will be officially released on August 30. Before the release date, you can listen to Shed's The Travellerhere.
