Without losing a hint of his analogue aesthetic, where sound flows endlessly, Lumpen Nobleman returns with a release that travels far, far away, to galaxies inhabited by mutant radiophonic workshops and colonised by industrial forces that know better than us; where electronic music is just a ritual, and collision and seduction are the same thing. Celestial rhythmic Fluxus of the highest divinity, or earnest, earthbound power electronics; who knows? What we really can assert, though, is that something ominous and bloody physical is about to happen. – José Luis Villalobos (Electrónica en Abril, Madrid)
A Magnificent Stone Near Nazarovo will be released by Extra Normal Records on 27 May 2013 in a cassette edition and Norman Records will be taking pre-orders shortly.
Extra Normal Records is excited to announce that Lumpen Nobleman will perform at La Casa Encendida, Madrid, on Sunday 22nd July as part of a series of events spanning July, August and September 2012.
The programme of concerts will include contributions from Sonic Youth co-founder, Kim Gordon, in collaboration with DNA no wave pioneer, Ikue Mori; avant minimalist, Eyvind Kang, alongside vocalist, Jessika Kenney; and hypnotic jazz experimentalists, The Necks.
We're delighted to be contributing a guest mix to Jonny Mugwump's Exotic Pylon radio show.
