Kraus is the solo project of American experimental musician and drummer Will Kraus. He self-released his debut record End Tomorrow in early 2016. Shortly after, it caught the attention of Terrible Records, who re-released it the following September. His rough yet sentimental music typically combines heavily manipulated melodic samples with live drums and vocals.
Regarding his playlist selection, Kraus adds: “This is a collection of new age songs that avoid the derivation the genre can often fall prey to. To craft music this different and nuanced is an esoteric practice I have a lot of respect for. They elicit a really particular feeling for me. They share genuine intentions and a deep reverence for the mystery of existence. Seriously… what the fuck is happening????”
