Microwolf is the project of Amsterdam based artist Benjamin van Vliet. He has released a new album called My Cauliflower Ears which is out now via Lost Tribe Sound and it is part of Fearful Void Series. According to the press release, it combines the sonically rich, yet minimal approach of drone music, the sampling techniques of hip hop, and the intimacy of folk-styled songwriting and storytelling.
This album, in the words of Van Vliet, is the most radical music he’s ever made. In that it achieves exactly what he set out to do, following up on rhythmic ideas and sonic landscapes that he has walked around with for years. There’s a humbly triumphant dynamic at play here, one that feels like Van Vliet has turned inward, learned some lessons from his past, and now has the clarity to express this intimate discourse.
