CS + Kreme are Conrad Standish and Sam Karmel – two Australians who record slow, hallucinatory experimental music. There was a meeting of minds at an intrepid friend’s day-party in Melbourne a few years back, followed by one alchemic studio jam. The rest was history.
Transcending style and space, CS + Kreme don’t follow a philosophy with making music, what they do is more fluid. Drawn like moths to the liminal state, they write slow and meditative “horizontal-music” which takes in heavy dub processing, sweeping post-punk and chamber music soundscapes, anchored around Standish’s leftfield bass guitar.
