“The surge in popularity of electronic music has given rise to a new kind of artist, an artist who neither wallows in the obscurities of dance music nor conforms completely to the accessible format. They rely on popular forms in an electronic aesthetic to add a sincere depth to pop culture without alienating the masses. Portishead, Snow Ghosts and The Knife are a few artists I could mention off the top of my head and the latest to the join the fray is a group out of Switzerland called Len Sander. Their debut album, Phantom Garden arrived with a note encouraging the listener to experience the contents at midnight through a set of good headphones. Following the band’s instructions I sank into the album as swells of reverberating bowed tones and Blanka’s vocals almost instantly began to float around the stereo field. It soon made sense why the group insisted on that particular situation in which to hear their album.”
