Stereogum navigates the many styles of Yves Tumor with 9 essential tracks
The enigmatic pop experimentalist Yves Tumor wins over new audiences every time he releases new music. Over the years, he has explored the most extreme genres, using harsh noise, field recordings and sampled loops soaked with droning ambient and hiphop.
Last week he surprise-released his new album ‘Safe In The Hands of Love’ via Warp Records. In contrast to what might have been expected, ‘Safe In The Hands of Love’ is a dark and melodic pop record. Now, Stereogum traces his musical career and navigates through the many styles Tumor has already assimilated. Read/listen here, or stream Yves Tumor's new album in full below.
Yves Tumor will perform at Le Guess Who 2018 together with a.o. LYZZA, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Saul Williams & King Britt, GAIKA, Kelman Duran, RP Boo, FAKA, DJ Noss, Kojey Radical, 700 Bliss, JPEGMAFIA, AMMAR 808, and many more.
