Mike Perry – The ‘Lapse’ Single Release.
Fu Inle Records is an Experimental Alternative music label based in and around London in England’s south. The label focusses on those artists who break, blend and distort musical ground into something well their own and with the latest single from Mike Perry boasting said idiosyncrasy ahead of an album launch in February, you may well want to look them up.
That can wait however as Mr Perry’s track ‘Lapse’ is beckoning and may well be the very lapse in your own concentration via its genre crossing composition. ‘Lapse’ is the forerunner for the artist’s February release entitled, Anthropocene, an album that going by the progressive and experimental stance ‘Lapse’ has taken, has very much peaked our interest.
The single’s vocal additions are performed by one Aimee Spanswick, adding to the multi-faceted aesthetic which attempts to combine stylistics ranging from Afrobeat, Jazz and Reggae to Math-Rock and Post-Punk.
Reading Mike Perry’s bio on bandcamp, social media and the press release, you are versed in such a wide range technical terms and genre drops that with any other artist you’d feel perplexed and before listening but upon pressing play, you’re enthralled.
The vocals (for the most part) lean well towards the more Reggae orientated camp as they run along side a gentle groove of Math-Rock guitars that occupy much of the songs six minutes. Mr Perry also provides the drum-work as well as ruling the songs composition and via this the technicality of the Math-Rock stylistics further provide that refined edge to the journey you’re being taken on.
With the tracks latter half intwining this gentle groove with a combination of smooth Jazz and a Latin-esque classic guitar-work the only thing you’re really left with is pure satisfaction.
With more collaborations done and dusted for the full-length and the video for ‘Lapse’ shot on location in Mumbai, Kerala , Goa and London, Mike Perry is set to have an interesting year to say the least.
