mondkopf - they fall, but you don't (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // mondkopf
LABEL // in paradisum (fr)
CAT // ip028lp


LP version. New from In Paradisum, the home of Low Jack and December, They Fall, But You Don't is the most straight-forward and cohesive Mondkopf album to date due to his switch to analog synthesizers. They Fall was been recorded live in his room in Paris in the sadly memorable month of November 2016. The record has something familiar with Mondkopf's previous output with the raw textures and half-light atmospheres, but the rest is a radical change for him. The synth pads of They Fall are neither retro nor futuristic. In addition to Paul's fragile vocals, they exhale a distinct feeling of just being there. The tracks follow their own path by being focused and vital. They Fall, But You Don't is the singular manifesto of a relationship to electronic music that leaves out the ideas of innovation and genre and more resembles the language of a new folk music; deeply evocative, powerful and free.
