One years later full-length Tundra, Irish duo Lakker (Ian McDonnell e Dara Smith) return with new ep. Struggle & Emerge will be out May 13 via R&S Records.
Lakker were commissioned by the RE:VIVE Initiative to create a new conceptual work solely sampling field recording, TV and radio broadcasts from the Dutch National AV archive, The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. The curated material provided all related to and was representative of the theme the “Dutch and water” The resulting 8 track release “Struggle and Emerge” is a tense soundtrack to the machine driven mid-20th century that captures the complex relationship between the Dutch and the water that surrounds them- unyielding, colossal, industrial. We already shared “Maeslantkering Gating”; “Emergo” is the second excerpt. Listen below.
