Hot on the heels of his 2019 debut album Dystopian Pleasures, Portland-based electronic producer Arkham Sunset (Gerry Hathaway, bassist of synth rock trio Masonique) returns with his sophomore release Ghost Culture. More cinematic and experimental than its predecessor, the EP spans several genres including industrial, synthpop, dark ambient and baroque music. Created entirely with hardware synthesizers and field-recorded samples, Ghost Culture is an honest aural observation of growing technological complacency and a lack of empathy prevalent in modern society—and the effect that has on the human condition. For fans of Tangerine Dream, Einstürzende Neubauten, Zombi and Jean-Michel Jarre, Ghost Culture is available on limited-edition cassette and streaming now on Bandcamp.
