Kyle Landstra
Rest Assured

Kyle Landstra's deep back catalog of reflective synthesizer compositions and his curation of the Temple Music series in Chicago have earned him a reputation as one of the finest synth gurus in the Midwest underground, conjuring intangible zones in which his audiences can retreat and spend some time with the self.

On "Rest Assured," Landstra excels in the construction of skeletal environments that seamlessly sink into the background and evoke playful, optimistic and contemplative moods. Each piece is arranged sparingly, and serves as a loose scaffolding or frame to contain a different feeling for the listener to sink into without distraction from the pace of a normal day.
