O novo disco de Boxcutter já está a sair do forno.Editado novamente pela Planet Mu, chama-se "Glyphic" e vai ser lançado dia 29 deste mês. Mary Ann Hobbs já o ouviu e descreve-o da seguinte forma:
"Tonight, we really do have a rare and special treat on the programme. Boxcutter is on the cusp of releasing a devastatingly beautiful second album titled "Glyphic" for the Planet Mu label, and tonight he's previewing that record exclusively on the show. His real name is Barry Lynn, and he's based out in Ireland, and he's said before that he rarely leaves his bedroom other than to go out riding his bicycles in the fields nearby. I asked him to give me a little bit of insight into the inspiration and the thought process that underpins the new record and this mix for us tonight, and this is what he said : "It was good doing the mix for your show because I'd been thinking about blending all the tracks together on the album but that didn't work out, so it was a chance to try some of the ideas that I originally had for it."
He goes on to say that the title "Glyphic" is just a word that he likes, it has North African connotations which is good because it connects with Sun Ra and Pharoah Sanders, and all the trippy spaced-out jazz that he's into, which he says you can find a little bit of on the new record too. "Most of the tracks are sort of dubstep tempo" says Barry, "but I prefer to think of it as drawing from the long and broad history of heavy UK rave and breakbeat music rather than one scene or sound in particular, and hopefully I've got a little bit of something that's unique to me in the record. My main aim is to make something that'll completely spin people when they hear it."
I can tell you right now - Glyphic is an album that will absolutely break your heart, and this is the world exclusive preview. Boxcutter, step up."
Ora bem, como pode ser lido neste pequeno texto Boxcutter, ou Barry Lynn, preparou um set com temas do disco ainda que com algumas alterações. Essa mistura pode ser encontrada via ZShare. O ficheiro tem 32Mb.
