Luke Abbott - Translate [CD]
Catalogue No.: 55BCCD
Release Date: 30th October 2020
‘Translate’ is the first solo artist album in six years from Norfolk synthesizer specialist Luke Abbott: a strikingly direct and assured return to the solo music-making game following a productive diversion into live improvisation with his
experimental jazz trio Szun Waves.
At times dark and ominous, others bright and welcoming, these eleven electronic vignettes form a dramatic and undeniably cinematic body of work which functions as a fitting widescreen soundtrack to our new now.
The lumbering rhythms, strident synths and distinctive touchstones of ‘Translate’ represent a musical reconciliation with the directness of the wave-making rolling synth-kraut of Abbott’s forthright debut ‘Holkham Drones’.
Newly reinvigorated and with a new sense of musical purpose, this is Luke Abbott’s sound fully realised and never so sure of itself.
