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.
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.”
“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.
“Gearing up for the release of his new project under the Pun Collins pseudonym, Lunar Influence – and collaborations with Nico Niquo and Fumitake Tamura– Lacan today shares his latest single and visual for the album track ‘I Decay (idk)’, and it definitely feels as if he is at one with nature but, with such a claustrophobic wall of sound behind him, is almost lost in his own world.”
Pun Collins lands at Them There for his first major release of 2018, following the hour long, beat-led exploration of ‘World Wide Wave’ for New York’s Dirty Tapes. This time, French artist, producer and filmmaker also known as 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.
Beneath the surface of ‘Lunar Influence’ lies a black hole of musical forms. Sucking in elements of footwork, spoken word, minimalism,and dub to form a unique mass of abstract ambience and paranoid pop.
Collaborative features on Lunar Influence arrive in the form of Japanese production maestro and Leaving Records alumni Fumitake (Bun) Tamura and the ever intriguing Australian Ambient up and comer Nico Callaghan aka Nico Niquo.
