JUPITER LION: We Will Lose Gracefully: LP

Sep 17, 2018

Four years since its last release, this Spanish trio returns with the contemplative and evocative We Will Lose Gracefully. The modus operandi eases the listener into a relaxed state with a lush, beat-filled ostinato soundtrack, featuring a hypnotic mix of Kraftwerk and Joy Division. The track “No Easy Subject,” which uses a robotic voice over a shimmering musical accompaniment as it discusses death, brought tears to my eyes, as I was hearing it five years to the day from when my mum died. It’s not something I will forget anytime soon. Likewise for the album as a whole, and all for positive reasons. –Rich Cocksedge (Bcore, [email protected], bcoredisc.com)
