LORN – NOTHING ELSE

LORN : NOTHING ELSE from StrangeLoop on Vimeo.

LORN – ‘TOMORROW’
ALBUM : NOTHING ELSE
MASTERING : CLARK
LABEL : BRAINFEEDER
DIR. STRANGELOOP

RELEASE DATE : JUNE 7th, 2010

CONCEPT : ADAM STOVER
PRODUCED BY BRAINFEEDER &
THE INSTITUTE FOR CINEMA STUDIES

All is not lost; the unconquerable Will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield:
And what is else not to be overcome?
- John Milton, Paradise Lost

“My answer to that,” explains Lorn, having quoted the words of Satan to his lieutenant Beelzebub, “is ‘Nothing Else.’” Which is one way to explain that this 23 year old “from the middle of nowhere in Illinois” is not keen on compromise.

The second artist album from Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint is a deep, deep, dark and uncompromising suite of music. The only Brainfeeder artist to neither come from or ever to have lived in LA, Lorn has already developed an international following for his music. Now, with “Nothing Else” the musician and artist reveals his debut full length. Epic, melancholic and brutal, it’s a record which the listener has to be prepared to immerse themselves in. The rewards make it worth the effort. From the fairground dramatics of “None An Island” through the soundtrack sweep and military momentum of “Army of Fear,” the discombobulated atmospherics of “Bretagne,” the sheer brute force of the bass on “Automaton,” the acid-fried detailing on “Voids” 1 and 2, the woozy migraine-simulacra of “Tomorrow,” the off-centre melodic catchiness of “Glass & Silver” and “Cherry Moon,” the deconstructed electro of “Greatest Silence” and on to the utterly uncompromsing conclusion of “What’s The Use,” where an underwater hip hop break smashes up against Hammond and the ghost of a human voice, this is a record which feels like its been hewn from stone. Albeit electronic stone.

A remarkable, transcendent achievement, no one who knows anything about him is going to claim that Lorn’s life has been easy and nor is his music. Instead it’s raw, emtional, angry, beautiful and real.

Charles Munka Bio:
Also known as QUES, those familiar with Andrew Meza’s BTS and Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder collective, will recognize his work. A member of the French art crew, LCP United, Munka’s style is strongly influenced by hip-hop and the progressive L.A. beat scene. Using mixed media, Munka’s work captures a new style of art that blends more traditional aspects of graffiti and his identification with contemporary and historical imagery from film, video games and pop art.

He was widely recognized for his ‘Finest Elements’ series of animated representations of artists such as MF DOOM, Madlib, J Dilla, Flying Lotus and RZA, among other notable producers and MCs.

Munka has toured extensively throughout Asia, America and Europe creating his art live at Brainfeeder events and most recently, during Samiyam gigs in Korea and Shanghai.

Munka is currently coming off of an extremely successful art show in Kanazawa, Japan with Los Angeles based producer/artist, Teebs. The two displayed and collaborated on several pieces for the event, many of which are now in private collections.
