One of XLR8R‘s favorite albums to see release this year so far is Black Noise by German techno minimalist Pantha du Prince. Something about producer Hendrik Weber’s deft combination of field recordings, bell sounds, and churning drum-machine rhythms struck a chord both in and out of the electronic music scene, and now the talented music maker is taking his excellent tunes to the wide open road. For the rest of May and the beginning of June, Weber will be playing select dates around Europe before taking the show stateside for his first performances on US soil in three years. The whole of his long-stretching trip is detailed below. (via Pitchfork)
