Oleksandr Demianenko is a Ukrainian musician and sound artist. Two years after Tapes Recorded For Watercolors, he’s back with a new album called Tapes Recorded For Watercolors Vol. 2 which is out now via Hush Hush Records. According to the press release, this album is the result of a chaotic and tumultuous period in Oleksandr’s life.

One of the only true salvations was time spent in his home studio, where he could escape in his otherworldly sonic creations. Building upon the whimsical sounds he’s captured in different pockets of the world, he creates hypnotic ambient vignettes and nostalgic electronic rhythms that transport the listener to a mysterious world. In similar fashion to his beloved debut album, his second album features 12 tracks that continue to draw upon his love of ambient, IDM, downtempo, and abstract music, often landing within a magnetic gray area between these styles.
