"LP is an oratorio in four movements. A humanistic mix of electronic pop with devotional subject matter. Continuing the musical themes of his previous two releases on H I T, 2010's Palinopsia mini-LP, and 2011's Darkbloom split with Grimes, d'Eon uses layers of digital keyboards and drum machine beats to carve pop songs out of counterpoint melodies and unresolved chord progressions. More evident than the previous two releases, d'Eon employs more of his classical piano training in the compositions, adding an increasing amount of fractal-ized, multiplying patterns of notes. The vocal and rhythmic approach of the songs are firmly rooted in pop music, using R&B and dance music as pieces of a larger oratorio, whose form, length and lyrical content more closely resemble long-form baroque music." Housed in a gatefold sleeve.
