A funny thing happened on the way out of the nightclub for electronic music. In a mad rush to push the envelope of technologic and rhythmic experimentation, melody has somehow become an afterthought. Which is what makes Ulrich Schnauss? sophomore album such a breath of fresh air, a serene marriage of solid songwriting and panoramic arrangements. With backward-glancing nods to the past, Schnauss has brilliantly combined the finest ambient electronics of Eno and Boards Of Canada with the textures of My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive to create music of astounding emotional resonance that appeals to both camps simultaneously. Originally released in Europe by Berlin/Manchester?s City Centre Offices in late 2003, A Strangely Isolated Place garnered a pile of press accolades and has been a consistent seller on import since its release. Also, Ulrich will be coming over in the fall for a full North American tour along with fellow like-minded traveler M83.
