Jakob Skøtt releases his 2nd album in 2014 on december 8th - preorder it here:
Taurus Rising is built from motoric synthesizer arpeggios and heavy duty live drumming. But rather than simply worshipping endless repetition, Skøtt reaches an impressive array of expressions on each of these five mini epics - each song is ALIVE - frequently whirling off track like the wind direction in a sand storm, leading to some mind-altering melodies and rhythms that’ll keep you on your toes. Washed currents of pulsating analogue synthesizer scores, pre-fusion jazz-sensibility and fuzz’ed out electronics all tied together by fevered rhythms.
Taurus Rising is released as a single LP as well as a 2xCD package also containing his previous album Amor Fati. All drums for each albums were improvised in a single afternoon:
Furthermore, Papir will soon release their soaring set from this year's Roadburn festival - Causa Sui's Jonas Munk is mastering the tracks as we speak, and we can tell you now: It's an absolute blast. Besides that we've got 2 more full length releases almost ready which will expand the perspective on everything that's El Paraiso, as well as some sweet extras, so keep your eyes peeled these next couple of months.
