Lunacy: Echo in the Memory LP
Lunacy’s "Echo in the Memory" continues the story the shadow figure left off on the debut effort “Age Of Truth” and examines a new world of emptiness that the past has left behind. The current world as we know it has ended The first effort for Oliver Ackermann’s (A Place To Bury Strangers / Death By Audio) newly formed label, Dedstrange & Lunacy’s sophomore release shows a more defined and developed sound and a catharsis contained within the fog. Lunacy’s take on cinematic post-punk, atmospheric washes of noise & repetition resonates on exactly the position the world is in - Starting on an echo and ending on To Be Continued[TBC]…
“Echo In The Memory” marks a new chapter for Lunacy in a step of sonic annihilation focusing on trying to rebuild a world that no longer exists. Previous works have been recorded on a 4- track tascam portastudio using various analog single unit drum machines, guitar, bass and synths. On this upcoming release the recording process has changed quite a bit, being recorded on an Otari Broadcast MX50/50 - a 4 track 1/4 inch tape machine brought back to life by Sean Hur. All backing tracks, drum samples & loops were produced on an all black mpc1000 except, “Fragmented Pulse” which used the classic dr-55 with an 8/12 bitcrusher fuzz pedal handmade by Kyle Reiff. Both analog & digital synths were used along with guitar & bass with various effects pedals. Recorded over a two year period from 2019 - 2021, mixed by Connor Clasen & Mastered by Oliver Ackermann.
