l a n d Anoxia (CD, £12.50)label: important
The second L A N D album ANOXIA sees Daniel Lea return alone with an outing that marks a shift from the industrial inflected jazz noir of the previous album into distinctly new terrain. Mixed by Ben Frost at Greenhouse studios in Reykjavik and mastered in Berlin by Rashad Becker at D&M. CD is packaged in a combination offset/screenprinted jacket. Featured artists: Daniel Lea with Rupert Clervaux, Jamie McCarthy, Clive Bell, Leo Abrahams, Mark Wastell, Dom Garwood. On the title track 'Anoxia' cello harmonics swing their head and screech like prancing komodo dragons, marking the entry to the final track, the 'End Zone', where Lea carries out his own initiating ritual, a dance between those edifices left beneath the growing millennial weeds and forests. Monuments that will long outlast their creators.
