Themselves : Le Fruit Vert

Tiny Mix Tapes on ‘Lunar Influence’

Tiny Mix Tapes’ Hydroyoga gets into ‘Lunar Influence’

“…Steeped, eminent, tangled, with its nuances dangling and dripping, Lunar Influence throws splotches of sound into outer space and lets them fall onto the surface of an exoplanet. We listen to it in the flow of some sort of semi-linguistic space: an architecture that beckons for a language to sprout from a tongue, yet that tongue does not move and cannot speak because it is not in a mouth. There is no mouth. It’s like having something to say, and instead of saying it, you reach for your 404 and start to envision how it would sound instead.”

Out Now – Pun Collins ‘Lunar Influence’

“French artist, producer and filmmaker Axel Lacan sets out to explore the more remote territories in his work. Delving deeper into the space between the beats; pulling apart the tracks bar-by-bar; letting them float weightlessly, and nurturing each noise, node, and note with a minimalist attention to detail.”

featuring collaborations from Japanese production maestro and Leaving Records alumni Fumitake (Bun) Tamura and the ever intriguing Australian Ambient up and comer Nico Niquo.

Limited Edition 12″ white label of Lunar Influence. Housed in screen printed matt white sleeve. Including a glossy 12″ insert and exclusive artwork by Axel Lacan available from our bandcamp here. Also available in select record stores across the UK. 100 copies only.

Pre-orders going out today.
