Listen/review: BREATHERRR - Chantrieri

Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki

BREATHERRR is a recording project masterminded by Long Beach multi-instrumentalist and producer Michael Anthony Espinach. He’ll be releasing debut LP Almond Noir at the end of the year and ‘Chantrieri’ is the lead single. Somehow managing to be both minimal and intensely psychedelic, the seedy verses expand into a new wave chorus with restless nervous energy. Espinach employs strong bass grooves and nuanced percussive play throughout - even a cursory listen suggests he’s one to keep a close eye on.

BREATHERRR releases Almond Noir on November 11
