Sacramento-born, San Francisco-grown musician and graphic artist Tycho (Scott Hansen) is preparing his next album, and today released the first song off the forthcoming work. “Division” swaps out his sunrise/sunset color scheme for something bordering more on the abstract, but the song retains his thinker’s mood and philosophy, continuing to do for electronic music what Explosions in the Sky did for post-rock guitar songs. It’s another song perfect for early morning runs, driving, and even early morning desk work (RIFF can exclusively confirm this).
Hansen has some shows coming up. If you plan to be at Treasure Island Music Festival, don’t miss his set as you watch the setting sun over San Francisco.
