Album News: Lorn to Release Debut on Flying Lotus’ Label
Emerging from the “middle-of-nowhere in Illinois” comes Lorn (aka Marcos Ortega), who is set to release his debut album ‘Nothing Else’ this 11th June on Brainfeeder through Inertia. The album is the first full-length album to be released on Flying Lotus’ private imprint Brainfeeder (through Ninja Tune).
Lorn has developed an international following after the the successful release of his ’7&13′ and ‘Grief EPs’. ‘Nothing Else’ showcases a deep, dark and uncompromising suite of music. Epic, melancholic and brutal, Lorn truly wears his heart on his sleeve. The entire album displays Lorn’s mastery of sound and emotion, his ability to inject intensity and a simmering violence into ostensibly down tempo material.
Described by Flying Lotus as “a dark, electronic album that I really think will surprise people”, ‘Nothing Else’ is a remarkable, transcendent achievement. No one who knows anything about him is going to claim that Lorn’s life has been easy, and nor is his music. Instead it’s raw, emotional, angry, beautiful and real.
You can download Lorn’s first single, “Cherry Moon”, for a limited time at FACT Magazine.
‘Nothing Else’ will be out 11th June 2010 on Brainfeeder through Inertia.
