Shiga Prefecture-based musician Erik Luebs, who works under the moniker Magical Mistakes, wanted to record the majority of sounds on his new album, “Everything Uncertain,” by himself. Save for a few vocal snippets and 808 bass drums, his newest full-length leans heavily on natural sounds from the world around him.
“I try to create a canvas on which the actual music takes place,” Luebs says. “For me, that canvas is trying to occupy a physical space that we can hear, feel, touch and see. The palette that I chose was organic sounds.”
