The Hotel Record LP comes out in May on Ambarchi's Black Truffle imprint.
It's the pair's second album, following their 2014 LP Sonja Henies Vei 31. While that one "presented a disquieting portrait of the erotic dimension of romantic intimacy," according to the label, Hotel Record explores the couple's everyday life "as a musical duo, as a pair of travelers to exotic locations, as opponents in a game of cards." Hotel Record integrates organ, guitar, '80s digital synth sounds, Buchla and field recordings made in Thailand over four distinct pieces.
The collaboration follows Ambarchi's well-received 2016 solo LP Hubris, which saw him collaborating with Mark Fell and Ricardo Villalobos, among others. The latter also remixed that material on the Hubris Variation EP.
