Engineers has teamed up with Stereogum to stream the band's upcoming fourth studio album, Always Returning, before it drops next week on September 16 through Kscope. Stream Always Returning in its entirety exclusively at:http://www.stereogum.com/1703884/stream-engineers-always-returning-stereogum-premiere/mp3s/album-stream/.
Written and recorded alone by multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters before being coated with deft brush strokes of ambient electronica by celebrated German artist/producer, Ulrich Schnauss, Always Returning is a record that unhurriedly drifts in and out of focus, hinting at themes without ever making them so explicit that the listener can't map out their own personal interpretations. It delivers an overall emotional heft that's impossible to pull away from.

Engineers - with London based drummer and composer, Matthew Linley, rounding out the line-up - has been creating mesmerizing music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and teasing lyrical ambiguities for over 10 years across three albums - 2005's debut Engineers, 2009's Three Fact Fader, and 2010's swift follow-up In Praise Of More.
Stay tuned for more information on Engineers and Always Returning, out next week on Kscope.
