Chris Weeks
The Lost Cosmonaut
Odd John Records
Catalogue Number
Release Date
October 28, 2013


Chris Weeks inaugurates the Odd Johns label with an album inspired by the legend of the lost cosmonaut, having in recent months issued a slew of material on subjects as various as his recently deceased cat, the ocean tides, and the moon. The album presents 10 tracks of expansive new-age synthetic ambience which suit the record’s sci-fi theme perfectly, but also recall the more pastoral side of Krautrock and the plaintive washes of the likes of Brian Eno. ‘Lagoon’ is full of the distant synthetic choirs which make Popol Vuh’s ‘Aguirre’ so appealing, while ‘Earth’ is fleshed out by white noise which might describe a slow return to the Earth’s atmosphere. The suspended, timeless quality which dominates the music on ‘The Lost Cosmonaut’ is sure to appeal to fans of a slower, layered listen.
