Melbourne-based duo Albrecht La’Brooyaka Sean La’Brooy and Alex Albrecht created the album in a mud-brick studio located on a strawberry crop.
Healesville follows their Apollo debut Tidal River, and is described by Apollo as “quietly sizzled majesty – a delicate fusion of ambient electronic textures, live instrumentation and field recordings.”
Their set-up included two pianos, a Waldorf, a Nord, and a collection of microphones, to capture their long-form improvisations, with cameos from percussionist Joseph Batrouney, guitarist Carla Oliver (Badskin) and guitarist Oliver Patterson.
