Steven Wilson – Grace For Drowning (180 gram black vinyl) import from the UK

“Grace For Drowning is Steven Wilson’s second album and develops further the uncompromising creativity evident on his highly regarded debut, Insurgentes.

A double album (“Two 40-45 minute albums in the same package.”), Wilson describes the release as, “My biggest project to date.”

Wilson adds, “Insurgentes was an important step for me into something new. This record takes that as a starting point, but it’s more experimental and more eclectic. For me, the golden period for music was the late sixties and early seventies, when the album became the primary means of artistic expression, when musicians liberated themselves from the 3 minute pop song format, and started to draw on jazz and classical music especially, combining it with the spirit of psychedelia to create “journeys in sound” I guess you could call them. So, without being retro, my album is a kind of homage to that spirit. There’s everything from [Ennio] Morricone-esque film themes to choral music to piano ballads to a 23 minute progressive jazz–inspired piece. I’ve actually used a few jazz musicians this time, which is something I picked up from my work remixing the King Crimson records.”

The limited vinyl edition features both ‘albums’ on heavyweight (180gm) vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. It also comes with a drop card containing a code to download a digital version of the album.”

Lantlôs – Agape (black vinyl) import from Germany 

“”Agape” – a non-physical, self-sacrificing kind of love – is the basic concept of Lantlôs’ third album. While its predecessor “.neon” posited a nearly violently negative reckoning with the trinity of reality – perception – self, and lyrically and musically revelled in surreal, cold visions, Lantlôs harness these visions into new channels on “Agape.”
The oppressive element of a dark flight from reality has given way to a new poetic dimension: warm and yearning lyrics are contrasted with brutal visions that trace the thin line between love and perversion. This contrast is perfectly captured in music on “Agape”: heavy walls of guitars alternate with gentle acoustic parts, the changes in tempo hover between dragging and pacing. In addition, “Agape” will surprise you with extensive instrumental passages with a soft and warm atmosphere which doesn’t shrink back even from jazz. Counteracted by the harsh, strangely cold vocals courtesy of Neige (Alcest), the compositions seem devoid of sense, oppressing, and sombre: beauty reversed into its opposite.
This contradiction which is so aptly expressed in the lyrics and the music is complemented by the elaborate design. “Agape” makes a visual impression with Herbst’s own paintings that unite idiosyncratic thought bytes with nightmarish visions.
On the one hand, “Agape” is a radical departure from Post Black Metal, while on the other, it is also its consistent further development. An open contradiction in a lyrical, musical, and visual dimension, this work creates a vicious circle and at the same time neutralises itself. What remains is emptiness of a new quality.”
