“A Thirst for Summer Rain” is the eighth full-length album of Lustre – the Swedish apotheosis of ambient black
As the initial waves of soothing keyboards come rolling in, it is immediately clear that Lustre still adheres to its
musical tradition of dreamlike minimalism. However, when the remaining instruments enter the picture, the
soundscape in which they are framed is likely to come as quite the surprise for long-time followers of the band.
“A Thirst for Summer Rain” is the first of Nachtzeit’s releases to have been recorded, mixed, and mastered in a
professional studio – a move which grants the album a depth previously unseen in Lustre. Yet make no mistake,
all the elements that brought the project to widespread prominence are firmly in place. “A Thirst for Summer
Rain” has a core of warm, ethereal ambience, but is coated in the eerie and harrowing darkness of 90s black
“A Thirst for Summer Rain” will see a CD and digital release by Nordvis on August 26, 2022. Vinyl is due for
release on October 28. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Odeholm Audio, courtesy of Buster Odeholm.
