ML Buch is Marie Louise Buch, a Copenhagen-based composer, producer, guitarist and vocalist. In her compositional practice ML Buch sketches up her music in an almost architectural way. The raw material is generated through immersion in playing and assembling as a way of triggering random magic. Her live performances, both in solo and group formations, is reflective of her love of combining seven-string electric guitars in open tunings with synthetic instruments and electronic experiments. Last year she released her 2023 sophomore album Suntub, a critical favorite full of uniquely elegant, arty, sweeping guitar-driven songs that touched upon shoegaze, dream-pop, post-rock, grunge, and synthetic styles in hypnotic painterly fashion.
ML Buch's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a fantastic survey of songs that capture her loose yet distinctive aesthetic, or as she shares: "a sense of space and dust, shimmer and distortion — and strong melodies."
