Since 2012, Marc Schuster has been recording and performing ambient music with various iterations of Android Invasion. His minimalist approach to composition and recording has drawn favorable comparisons with Brian Eno, Terry Riley, and Lamonte Young. Hungry Hour Music is proud to release his latest EP, Low Earth Orbit alongside his earlier works, States of Wonder, Field Report, On a Thursday, the Typist Dreams, and Life at the Pace of Objects.
"An exploration of the tension between nature and technology that strikes a precarious balance between organic and electronic sounds." - The Playground
We're trying something new with this one. In addition to making it available on all of the "traditional" online outlets like Apple Music, Amazon, and Spotify, we're also making the EP free to fans. Click on the EP cover, and you'll go to a page where you can preview and download the EP. If you feel so obliged, you can also leave a tip in the tip jar, but if not, no worries! We're just glad that you like our music!
"Remarkably human, warm and inviting android-sounding minimalism."
-- Dan Lis, Composer's Toolbox
With a style reminiscent of Brian Eno, Field Report has earned favorable comparisons with minimalist composers Terry Riley and Lamont Young. Available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, BandCamp, and all major online music outlets.
On a Thursday, the Typist Dreams is one of several "lost" Android Invasion collections that Hungry Hour Music has managed to piece together after minutes of painstaking research. The album offers eight lo-fi instrumental tracks that tell the story of a young typist who dreams of travel but is haunted by memories that she'd rather not confront. The album includes the regional hits "Lonely Sunday" and "Why Is a Car on My Lawn?" Available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, BandCamp, and all major online music outlets.
Inspired by the writings of the late French social theorist Jean Baudrillard, Life at the Pace of Objects represents Android Invasion's first steps into the world of ambient and electronic music. Originally recorded in 2012, it was the first EP that Android Invasion released, but the tracks were lost as the band moved from computer to computer. After months of exhaustive research (i.e., checking old hard drives), we've found the original masters, given them a little polish, and made them available wherever you download or stream music!
"Sort of an 'ordered' chaos." - Jeff Archuleta (aka Eclectic Music Lover)
Inspired by a recent New Yorker article about the thousands of pieces of space junk circling the planet, Low Earth Orbit offers a blend of ambient and experimental electronic music while occasionally flirting with EDM and rock. Currently available on Bandcamp. Coming soon on Spotify and other streaming services.
