Avian label head Guy Alexander Brewer will release his third full-length as Shifted on Dominick Fernow‘s Hospital Productions on October 18.

Appropriation Stories will be his first LP since 2013’s Under a Single Banner—which dropped on Hospital sub-label Bed of Nails—and follows the same dense path set by its predecessor. The album is filled with intricately layered textures and evolving, warped atmospheres which slowly unfold and reveal themselves over time. These subtle techniques are bookended across the release with syncopated, rolling drums and enough bass weight to satisfy the techno heads, resulting in a full-length that is as beautiful as it is ominous.

In anticipation of the release, Brewer and Hospital have offered up a full stream of “Spires,” a murky and rhythmically complex cut which you can hear via the player above.
