Pyrit’s “UFO”: album review

Unbelievably this multi-layered multi-instrumental genre-blending soundscape masterpiece is the work of a single musician, Swiss German Thomas Kuratli. With elements of psychedelic and space rock, stoner doom metal, blues, and synth wave, Pyrit’s 2015 record “UFO” also sounds a little like Beach House, West Virginia band Librarians, and a touch of the electric reverb of Captured Tracks acts like DiiV.
At times the vocals verge on wild shrieks while the accompaniment reminds focused and logical, at other times the singing is clear and melodic while full of emotion and energy and the accompaniment is organic, flowing, breathing.
I have to think Pink Floyd is also an influence – just listen to the way the synths turn that corner at the 1’19” mark in “Q Bird.”
