Published Apr 30, 2014In its relatively brief existence, Vancouver cassette label 1080p has become a go-to source for the best in rising experimental dance acts. The label's hot streak continues with a new release from Vancouver's LNRDCROY.
LNRDCROY is the project of Vancouver artist Leon Campbell, and his debut album for 1080p is a 10-song collection called Much Less Normal.
A press release describes Much Less Normal as an "hour-long collection of crystalline, memory-drenched tracks" that dabble in "lightly cosmic electronica," "dusty rave signifiers," "ambient techno and '90s Euphoria."
It also adds this: "The sensation of space, attention to texture and generally deft abilities to articulate a physical zone suggest this is the work of a true head, though one very much in outside world as much as studio/imagination. The dreamlike borderlands of Much Less Normal's cross genre experiences are divided by nowness, naiveity and deep appreciation."
Much Less Normal will be released on May 20 as a limited cassette and digital download. There are no samples from the release just yet, but you can hear a recent mix from the artist below.
