Long Beach, CA-based, post-psychedelic/electronic artist BREATHERRR, AKA multi-instrumentalist/producer Michael Anthony Espinach, takes an experimental approach to his intriguing music, interweaving strands of trip-hop, jungle, new wave jazz, pop, and more into his explorative soundscapes. BREATHERRR’s upcoming album, Almond Noir, is set for release November 11th worldwide.
BREATHERRR came to life in early 2014, quickly gaining critical acclaim and building up a strong following in the Long Beach and surrounding areas. He has played numerous shows at SXSW and performed to packed venues across Southern California, opening for artists like Pictureplane and DJ R.A.W.
Lead single “Chantrieri” takes the listener on a fantastic(al) trip through a psychedelic mash-up of exotic sounds, textures, and rhythms. On the tune, BREATHERRR roams through and fuses various music genres, from tribal to jazz and pop, pulling out all the stops by contrasting crisp, lively percussion with a hypnotically smooth flow. The result is a scintillating, seductive, destabilizing mix that is not to be missed.
