Analogue Attic continues to draw from the fresh stream of talent running out of Australia, this time with Jack Burton, a composition student from the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts. His debut LP 'Lake Monger' was composed across two cities over the period of a year and features contemplative synths, techno and experimental influences.
The record climaxes in the three-part, 12-minute title track that swells in energy and intensity, drawing influence from ambient masterpieces of the 90s with modern day production, demonstrating impressive compositional maturity.
I don't know what genre this belongs to, but it's a genre that fills me with peace and transports me far away. At times it reminds me of the quieter Kuniyuki Takahashi tracks. Brilliant. David Chatenay
