San Francisco ambient artist Tycho (known by the government as Scott Hansen) has released a new single, titled “Awake” from his upcoming album due out sometime next year. We had the pleasure of seeing Tycho at Lightning in a Bottle this year and were blown away. Ambient music is an interesting genre in that it is so situation specific.
Tycho‘s music has that something special that separates him from the rest of the crowd. “Awake” has the vastness and soaring feeling that makes ambient music, well… ambient, while tapping into a enthusiasm that propels the listener forward, but nowhere in particular. It’s pretty late out here on the west coast but if your reading either before bed or early Tuesday morning sipping your coffee this is the track for you. Trust me.
