hons is a Vienna-based electroacoustic musician with a knack for experimental sounds and gritty trip-hop grooves. His latest full length album necessities both brims with industrial sounds and creepy psychedelic rants and encompasses all of the elements of a great down-tempo/trip-hop album that shines in a very dark way.
Necessities is not for the faint of heart, but the album wouldn’t be as sonically uncompromising or convincing if hons tried to be all things to all people - an audio excavator, plunging deeper into the harmonic regions of darkness in order to extract the hope and sensitivity buried far beneath the surface.
For trip-hop fans looking for a little more ‘space’ in their diet, Necessities should satisfy that taste hands-down.
Enjoy, Yours truly,
