Iglooghost will release Lei Line Eon, his second album, in April.
Lei Line Eon is Iglooghost’s follow up to his breakthrough debut album, Neō Wax Bloom on Brainfeeder. The release is a product of the British artist, real name Seamus Malliagh, integrating his hometowns of Dorset’s secretive tradition of Lei music, a mysterious sub-genre that “summons floating lifeforms,” he says.
The performance of Lei music has “extraordinary effects and whilst there is no clear explanation of why, some believe it could be related to a variety of properties unique to Dorset,” we’re told.
Lei Line Eon features collaborations with LOLA and BABii, the latter whom he has worked with alongside Kai Whiston collectively as Gloo, creating clothing, club nights, and strange online artefacts.
Alongside the announcement, Iglooghost has shared “Slyph Fossil,” the album’s second single. The track features glitch-heavy production as the foundation behind Iglooghost’s distorted vocals. It follows on from Eœ (Disk•Initiate) released last year alongside Iglooghost’s short film around Lei music.
Iglooghost is a UK based artist who creates music, artwork, and puzzles that all gravitate around a fictional ecosystem of strange entities and tiny gods. Each of Iglooghost’s releases expand on this universe through multimedia content and Lei Line Eon is “sure to excite and intrigue listeners,” we’re told.
