LP version in embossed sleeve with three-millimeter spine and sticker. Includes CD. Irish electronic musician Jack Colleran aka Mmoths created his debut album, Luneworks, during a period of personal upheaval. He headed out to a friend's tiny spare room in LA with only a laptop and a few changes of clothes for an intense month of nocturnal 12-hour writing and recording sessions. Colleran isolated himself in order to keep the songs as pure as possible; the quiet of the city at night was a real inspiration, and the constraints of an alien environment proved something of a liberation. The ancestral, ethereal spirit of Ireland is also present throughout Luneworks. Kevin Shields (of My Bloody Valentine), one of Dublin's most famous sonic outliers, is a noted influence -- another musician who has wrung sweet emotion out of chaotic noise. Luneworks is a fully immersive head-trip; an album that is at times brutal and at others unbearably beautiful, sometimes within a single track. Luneworks is a mirror for the soul -- a gorgeous, wordless expression of unedited, unfiltered emotion, heralding the arrival of one of the most important electronic artists of his generation.
