TheAwayTeam new and highly anticipated album "Star Kinship" will be released Sept 21st on japanese label Moamoo. It's the third release after "Evacuate Planet Earth" (Bumtapes, Hooker Vision) and "Relax&Sleep" (DVD-EP on Sturmundrugs Records). The sound inspiration for "Star Kinship" lies somewhere between Steve Roach tribal ambient albums (especially "Strata" with Robert Rich, and the other "aboriginal" influenced stuff), early 90's chillout electronica (from "A Huge ever growing.." by the Orb to Warp's Artificial Intelligence series) with a reminiscence of the dark exotica explorations of obscure Umiliani's library albums like "Polinesia": it was conceived as background music for an imaginary voyage in a "lost continent" (both in time and space), through desert plains, waterfalls, and deep forests where mysteryous rites are celebrated by uncontacted tribes with a special blood tie with the stars.
