‘Esrevoinma’ is out July 3rd on Brainfeeder
Stuart Howard aka Lapalux returns on Brainfeeder with “Esrevoinma”, a six-track EP of “post-apocalyptic Eurorack mayhem”. The fruits of a couple months or so of “tinkering”—as Howard rather modestly describes his creative process—this sextet arrives as an extension of Lapalux’s latest album “Amnioverse”, a record that revolved around notions of fluidity; that birth, life, death, and rebirth is a never ending continuum. Described as an artist who “has always felt ahead of the curve” (Clash), “Amnioverse” was hailed as a “fluid, escapist gem” (The Line of Best Fit), and as the British producer’s “crowning glory and one of Brainfeeder’s most essential bodies of work.” (London In Stereo).
Introducing “Esrevoinma” is ‘51 Endless Pulses’—a cyclone of modular chaos that slowly builds, then whips past, faltering, before almost collapsing in on itself. It’s a stunning example of Howard’s highly textured, maximal electronica, and makes up one of the three brand new tracks on the EP alongside ‘Nebula’ and ‘Unfold’. Elsewhere Howard showcases a storming live rework of ‘Earth’ and alternate versions of album cuts ‘The Lux Quadrant’ and ‘Amnioverse’.
