Ok, not got anything of value music-wise to add to this (haven’t had a proper look at today’s releases yet) - just wanted the opportunity to share the press release for Jane Weaver’s Architect EP, which seems to have been put together by a terrifying Frankenstein’s monster of 90% of The Skinny writers ever, constructed in a secret bunker deep underneath the Newsnight Review studios :
“‘The Architect’ sees Jane Weaver evolving with an aero-lite melodicism, the drum heavy vivacious pop song evokes vivid images of early Modernist art, Archigram blue-prints with a rigid back-bone of Eames worthy construction. Directly inspired by Hilma af Klint’s séances, spiritualism and the science of anthroposophy that formed the artist’s abstract paintings, Weaver finds herself in a transformative state channelling her inner spirituality, it’s place within her music and the cosmos. Shifting perspectives with her meditative vocal explorations and oneiric flow on ‘Code’. Eight-minute psych-pop opus ‘Element’ is richly melodic replete with pulsating analogue synths, unrelenting motorik rhythms and incessant beats. The perfect antidote to those longing for more music since the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Modern Kosmology’, the release features title track alongside unreleased new tracks and a special remix by Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel.”
“Worthy construction”. Don’t get that with yer Kasabian.
