[INSTRUMENTAL AMERICANA] Austin group Balmorhea creates the kind of soundscapes perfect for wandering imaginations. The narrative between quiet minimalist guitar phrases, swelling classical string sections, ambient synthesizer and propelling rhythms forces the mind to travel through riveting and wordless stories for which the perception of sound plays a big role. Originally formed in 2006 by Rob Lowe (not that Rob Lowe) and Michael Muller, the now six-member band released Stranger, its fifth full-length album, last year. Marking Balmorhea’s most ambitious and complicated arrangements, Stranger revolves around dissonance and harmony, chaos and resolution, emotiveness and tranquility—all while maintaining its signature cyclical guitar patterns and means for cognitive catharsis.
