Stubbleman’s panoramic debut album, Mountains and Plains, is inspired by a journey across the USA, during which Pascal recorded many sounds and ideas to be used as a basis for eleven tracks. These were further elaborated in his studio in southern France, and mixed in London with his old friend and accomplice Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, Tuxedomoon, Grizzly Bear).

A true sonic road trip, the album evokes the poignant delights of endless train tracks, sleepless cities, nostalgic ruins, big skies, high deserts and lost junctions (which Pascal also captured in videos which will illustrate his live shows), keeping at all times an affectionate eye for the humanity which populates these diverse landscapes.

The music in Mountains and Plains can be perceived as a contemporary take on the golden era of ambient music in the ‘70s, while entertaining a relationship with the current trend of instrumental music which sits on the border between electronic and classical/minimal.

It will be released by Crammed Discs on April 26th, 2019,
