Two years, two self released albums and various UK and international live shows later, j.b. glazer returns to Them There for another round of mutant club hitters and abstracted dungeon blues. Following on from the blinding 2018 debut album ‘Compact Break’ – ‘Divine Glint Music’ captures glazer working to the utmost extremes of his practice, wrestling with themes of duality to give rise to some of his most realised and polished work to date.
Divine Glint Music represents a stirring experiment in new production techniques for j.b. glazer, initiated through the reconstruction of forgotten collaborative material and the use of turntables as a compositional tool.
New to Them There, a limited-edition cassette from Manchester born and Glasgow based multi-instrumentalist Otis Jordan. ‘Dodger Point’ captures Jordan’s most recent musical meditations recorded in bare-bones DIY style at home in Manchester in early 2020. It plays out as a cut and paste mixtape of fractured folk and field recordings, at times sounding like a long-lost archival recording of primitive tribal dance music. Instruments and objects – old, new, and borrowed – from the likes of fellow DIY enthusiast and cosmic wanderer Paddy Steer, are plucked, strung, hammered, and bowed into webs of rhythms and resonance.
