The powerful merging of their multifarious background finds renewed drives throughout the eight stations that make up this impressive sonic assemblage – an undaunted secular hymn to the dreads and forethoughts that have haunted our last two years. Prepared piano, pandemic flute, melting metals, modular boxes, lavish vibes and spectral voices lead us from dreaming to waking up abruptly, modulating promises through the dark and the light for a better version of us.
Distance, kindness, urge, madness propel this assertive eruption of creative endurance. Grouper meeting Thelonious Monk for an impromptu jam with the Incapacitans, Muslimgauze, Della Derbyshire, Stars of the Lid, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Kim Gordon, The Creatures, Sunn o))), and Sun Ra: or just forget all these and simply listen to the first chapter of Better Corners‘, “Modern Dance Gold Vol.1“!
