Vincent Rayne A type of sound I've really been into lately is music with deep base. It's why I've been into Witch House, recently. But this is Android Lust. Her music is already amazing and most of this album gives me a similar feel that the first album, and still one of my favorites, I've heard from her has which was Devour, Rise, Take Flight. Favorite track: Here and Now.

sonicwizard79 this is a life changing album, it is truly brilliant! Android Lust is an innovative artist but this album took it to another 50 levels, as a musician crater vol 1 changed the way I see songwriting, it shows a limitless potential. all of her releases are amazing but for me this one stands above them all.

silentwrath Soft, more futuristic album. I love everything AL does, but this seems to be the best transition so far. Favorite track: Here and Now.

Andrew Morris I supported the Kickstarter and love the results. I randomly choose which is my favorite track because, to my mind, while each track stands on its own, one must take this compilation as a whole. Favorite track: When the Rains Came.

chrisedu this album is an excellent example of sound-design, avant-garde music and melodic lines. Very well crafted and musically pleasant. My favourite Favorite track: My Kingdom for a God.

about

A collision leaves a mark. A planet's surface is broken; a body, a heart, or a mind is left rent and torn. But trauma is only the initiation of change. Broken earth can fill with water, become a lake, host new life. Battered hearts can mend, forgive, forget. Whether jagged hole or fractured soul, a crater is a process, not a state of being.

This is the purview of Crater Vol. 1, the fifth studio album from Android Lust. After the success of 2010's The Human Animal and the national tours that followed, singer/songwriter/producer Shikhee uprooted from her longtime home of New York City and settled on the opposite coast, in Los Angeles. The new surroundings were accompanied by a new method of songwriting. "I wanted to take a more linear approach to writing with a stronger emphasis on sound design, focus on mood pieces and let vocals take a backseat."

That sound design has always set Android Lust apart from the pack, and Crater Vol. 1 puts the intricate electronic and acoustic instrumentations front and center; only three songs feature Shikhee's memorable voice. Ambient soundscapes give shape to the void, while beds of processed field recordings provide grit and texture. Rhythmic melodies build like thunderheads but rarely break into outright storms, maintaining a pensive mood throughout. Crater Vol. 1 is an album for the aftermath of a traumatic impact, a soundtrack for the introspective journeys that bring new growth.

Track Name: I Need to Know
I need to know
I need to ask
I need to see if we're built to last
I need to see
Do I still
Believe that you belong to me

It's well past time
I set my affairs to right
All this new information
Started anew this struggle inside

I need to know
I need to find
I've been looking for some sign
You should know
I don't mind
If our paths are no more aligned

I have learned
It's been good
We are drifting we knew we would
I need to find
I need to seek
The stranger and merge within
