RETO A ICH (prefuse 73)

THE LAPSE OF THE EXCHANGE

K7 Records



lp + download

Released: 22nd Dec 2017

£22.99


an electronic record that feels deeply connected with the emotions felt by a beating human heart, this is a powerfully moving listen.

The first side reflects the tension between the life of the artist & the bustling world outside; the wars abroad, the politicians at home. It's a tension felt in the repeating, circling keys of ‘Let The Pianos Freeze’, the pulsating rhythms of ‘No Juntos’, or the call & response of pitched vocal samples in ‘A Sword In The Rain’. halfway through, he can no longer grasp his humanity or connect to people around him. he packs up his small life & escapes. This change in situation is reflected in the second half of the album, with tension giving way to a rush of emotions: modulated elation on ‘All Regrets’, sweeping melancholy on ‘Tuesdays Always Awful’, & soaring hope on ‘Broad Plant Pt.2’.
