    '...the combination of lo - fi organs, breathy vocalisations and murky field recordings are not easily compared to other artists...'Ephémérides' sounds like someone rewinding a church, while 'Exposition' is a reverberating, Casio beauty of a thing' - Electronic Sound UK on Passiflore

    "Steeped, eminent, tangled, with its nuances dangling and dripping, Lunar Influence throws splotches of sound into outer space and lets them fall onto the surface of an exoplanet. We listen to it in the flow of some sort of semi-linguistic space: an architecture that beckons for a language to sprout from a tongue, yet that tongue does not move and cannot speak because it is not in a mouth." - Tiny Mix Tapes on Lunar Influence

    Includes unlimited streaming of Passiflore via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Pun Collins lands at Them There for his first major release of 2018, following the hour long, beat-led exploration of ‘World Wide Wave’ for New York’s Dirty Tapes. This time, French artist, producer and filmmaker also known as Axel Lacan sets out to explore the more remote territories in his work. Delving deeper into the space between the beats; pulling apart the tracks bar-by-bar; letting them float weightlessly, and nurturing each noise, node, and note with a minimalist attention to detail.

Beneath the surface of ‘Lunar Influence’ lies a black hole of musical forms. Sucking in elements of footwork, spoken word, minimalism, and dub to form a unique mass of abstract ambience and paranoid pop.

Axel has arrived here with a clear and concise message, delivered with restraint and composure and arranged with Collins’ signature flair for captivating narrative. ‘Lunar Influence’ sees Axel, for the first time, channeling his frustrations and scepticism into his music, assembling an album that is cynical and dark yet beautifully honest.

Collaborative features on Lunar Influence arrive in the form of Japanese production maestro and Leaving Records alumni Fumitake (Bun) Tamura and the ever intriguing Australian Ambient up and comer Nico Callaghan aka Nico Niquo.

“This is weird stuff but it isn’t weird about it. Pun Collins makes these soundscapes flatly, letting them perpetuate and whirr until we’ve taken in the environment for what it is. 8/10 ” - Norman Records

"Pun Collins has made use of the useless, of the hidden moments of our life" - Tiny Mix Tapes

“Lunar Influence transcends it’s own sense of millennial irony and detachment, revealing complex layers and a thoughtful sense of dynamics and pacing with each repeated listen” - Stone In Focus

“Lunar Influence creeps along unobtrusively, its languid beats propping up purple melodies as shadows cascade across dreamscapes. The sounds slowly coat your perception, settling under their liquid weight, and begin to affect you at an atomic level, warping reality.” - Tabs Out
