Alexander Tucker is known for his collaborations with Stephen O’Malley (Ginnungagap), members of Circle and Guapo (Grumbling Fur), and as a one-time touring member of Jackie-O Motherfucker. He collaborated  on last year’s Imbogodom album (The Metallic Year, Thrill-245), and he is a highly regarded British songwriter who has released several recordings on the UK-based ATP label.

Dorwytch is one of Tucker’s first proper releases on a US label and his solo Thrill Jockey debut. Tucker’s talent as a pop songwriter begins to fully reveal itself. This record breaks new ground for Tucker by combining minimalist string arrangements with electronic manipulations and drones to produce doom chamber-pop songs and psychedelic music-concrete collages.

“Best known for mangling his cello with pedals, Tucker’s new album sees him taking his most focused approach yet, creating eddying psychedelia that calls to mind thundercloud building over an English meadow in summer.” – NME
