The Bunker A/V Sessions

We are excited to celebrate the beginning of summer with another installment of The Bunker AV Sessions. Dapper dance chameleon Uwe Schmidt has just dropped his follow-up to last year’s Winterreise. “HD” marks Schmidt’s return to regular home Raster-Noton, and sees him recruit the likes of Jamie Lidell, Alva Noto and Jorge Gonzalez as side players.
