On this new album, he plays minimalist electronic rock'n'roll with just an electric guitar, a microphone, an analogue-sounding drum machine, a tape deck, and the help of Alexandra Cabral on synthetizer and backing vocals, creating the rawest and most stripped-back manifestation of his singular muse to date.
