Indie electronica impresario Ulrich Schnauss returns with a second full-length collaboration with guitarist Mark Peters, titled Tomorrow Is Another Day. Premiering here on PopMatters, album track “Das Volk Has Keine Seele” offers a complementary mix of synthetic and organic elements, as some staticky hiss that begins the piece opens up into tender guitar plucking and gently ascendant keyboard lines.

Tomorrow Is Another Day is due out on 29 October via Bureau B.
