[ARGREC10] John Lithium (Insomnia)

De Argali Records

 

For fans of Tim Hecker, Nadja, Aidan Baker, Beyond Sensory Experience, Lustmord, Coil, Yellow Swans, Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin, Atrium Carceri, and experimental electronica/drone/dark ambient in general.

John Lithium returns with his second ‘solo’ album: “Insomnia”. While the preceding album, “The Mysterious Stranger”, was a harrowing glimpse into the inner mechanics of a melancholic persona, “Insomnia” is an auditory study and presentation of the phenomena of persistent sleeplessness, and the changes created to the perceptive systems during this mental state.

The album restlessly moves from form to form, as clouds of darkened ambience and haze-filled drone coalesce and flow past eyes malfunctioning from weariness. A strange duality occurs as emotive triggers echo memories in your inner vision. Time itself is altered, seemingly rushing past at one moment, only to slow down to a terrifying crawl the next. Thoughts enter the abstract, as previously difficult to grasp ideals and ideological constructs become crystal-clear for a brief moment in time. The psyche becomes, as it will from time to time, a ship lost in the endless waters of the subconscious, or a lone radio receiver, desperately seeking any transmission that should make sense or provide some measure of comfort…

Music worth staying awake for. This one’s for you.

This is ARGREC10.
