Lorn - Nothing Else



Lorn Nothing Else
Lorn - Nothing Else
(LP/CD/Download) Brainfeeder BF007/BFCD007/BFDNL007, 2010-06-07

The second artist album from Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint is a deep, deep, dark and uncompromising suite of music, produced mastered by Clark (Warp Records). The only Brainfeeder artist to neither come from or ever to have lived in L.A., Lorn has already developed an international following for his music. Now, with Nothing Else the musician and artist reveals his debut full length. Epic, melancholic and brutal, it's a record which the listener has to be prepared the immerse themselves in. The rewards make it worth the effort.

All is not lost; the unconquerable Will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield:
And what is else not to be overcome?
- John Milton, Paradise Lost

"My answer to that," explains Lorn, having quoted the words of Satan to his lieutenant Beelzebub, "is 'Nothing Else.'" Which is one way to explain that this 23 year old "from the middle of nowhere in Illinois" is not keen on compromise.

The second artist album from Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint is a deep, deep, dark and uncompromising suite of music, mastered produced by Clark (Warp Records). The only Brainfeeder artist to neither come from or ever to have lived in LA, Lorn has already developed an international following for his music. Now, with "Nothing Else" the musician and artist reveals his debut full length. Epic, melancholic and brutal, it's a record which the listener has to be prepared the immerse themselves in. The rewards make it worth the effort. From the fairground dramatics of "None An Island" through the soundtrack sweep and military momentum of "Army of Fear," the discombobulated atmospherics of "Bretagne," the sheer brute force of the bass on "Automaton," the acid-fried detailing on "Voids" 1 and 2, the woozy migraine-simulacra of "Tomorrow," the off-centre melodic catchiness of "Glass & Silver" and "Cherry Moon," the deconstructed electro of "Greatest Silence" and on to the utterly uncompromsing conclusion of "What's The Use," where an underwater hip hop break smashes up against Hammond and the ghost of a human voice, this is a record which feels like its been hewn from stone. Albeit electronic stone.

A remarkable, transcendent achievement, no one who knows anything about him is going to claim that Lorn's life has been easy and nor his his music. Instead it's raw, emtional, angry, beautiful and real.

Didn't LORN produce his own album if he's the artist? I heard that CLARK was mastering it? Better fix that.

Capt. Milton is correct... Lorn did write and produce all material. Clark simply mastered it for him... n yes it mos def needs to be corrected. sure a few quick edits onna few websites wouldnt hurt but then again ppl seem to be slow on fixing these kinda things...
