Ben Frost: Aurora

A bounty of album drops in the music we tweeted this week

Australian-born, Reykjavík-based film composer and producer Ben Frost has released a highly anticipated fifth solo album called A U R O R A, which delivers an intense 40 minutes of experimental electronic sounds that reflect both his musical talents and time spent being mentored by Brian Eno. But most of all the album channels Frost’s time in the DR Congo with photographer Richard Mosse, for whom he created the exceptional soundscape to the infrared-shot short film “The Enclave.” Certainly more of an abstract art piece, A U R O R A transcends music’s emotional pull with its chaotic but wholly fascinating allure.
