Emancipator Releases Stunning New LP ‘Baralku’

Emancipator has released his latest LP, Baralku, and it is fantastic. Dreamy, atmospheric chill wave at its best. Like walking through an hallucinogenic forest. Producer Doug Appling has reach a new level of sonic bliss with his latest 14 track endeavor. Below fans can find the full album and a video recap of his Red Rocks performance.

In October, Emancipator shared a 25-date tour. It is set to kick off on January 30 in Burlington, VT at Higher Ground and wrap up on March 31 in Portland, OR at Crystal Ballroom. It will feature his five-piece Emancipator Ensemble. Be ready to be transported.
Speaking about Baralku, Alping says:
“Music takes me to places, and each song is a spirit island on which its soul lives infinitely. To release a song is both a death and a birth at the same time,” he adds. “The sounds contained in each song have reached the end of their life process. The once shapeshifting collage of expression has been crystallized into a final form, no longer kinetic. Yet it exists in a state of permanent potential energy, waiting to be accessed in the form of music, just as the memory of a departed soul will always have the power to move us.”
The new album can be found below, along with a full set of 2018 tour dates. It is available for purchase here.
