Horrors man Tom Furse to drop ‘Ecstasy’ LP in late January
The news of the album, set for the spring, came with a three minute edit of a 20 minute epic âA Journey In Ecstasyâ that will open the Ecstatic Meditations album when it drops at the end of January.
The upcoming album release marks the latest of Lo Recordingsâ âSpaciousnessâ series, which explores past and present movements in new age, ambient, deep listening and post-classical music.
True to Furseâs desire to make something âunashamedly joyfulâ in contrast to todayâs dark times, all of the tracks on âEcstatic Meditationsâ blend soothing inspirations from the likes of Alice Coltrane, Steve Reich, Laraaji and Japanese environmental ambient musicians, aiming to achieve longform electronic bliss.
Recorded, mixed and mastered solely by Furse in his modular synth-stocked, coastal Margate studio, âA Journey Of Ecstasyâ is one of six tracks to be featured. Besides his work with The Horrors, Furse is known for his monthly NTS Radio show and his impressive collection of synths, including âThe Pyramidâ, one of two oddly-shaped sound-generating devices exclusively built by inventor David Cranmer aka. Nervous Squirrel.
The albumâs launch will coincide with an exclusive audiovisual event, soon to be announced by Furse.
