about

LAN Formatique's sophomore outing, "The Sadness of Distances", at last gets a physical release by way of US label Signifier. The album finds the Scottish artist expertly blending electronic glitches, orchestral arrangements, post-rock guitars, field recordings and bold acoustic percussion to create a unique, genre-straddling sound while at the same time, remaining wholly personal.

Adding depth of emotion are vocal collaborations with electro chanteuse Céline and award-winning author Alasdair Gray, whose words and voices blend perfectly with the album's tone. "The Sadness of Distances" is a love letter to travel, loss, and transatlantic romance.

Featuring nine original tracks plus remixes from the incomparable Subheim and Detritus. Design and photography by eye.lyft. Limited to 500 beautiful dual process digipak copies worldwide.

For fans of Detritus and Bitcrush

It is us, stomping away on pulsating dance floors, a community. It's an artist, a creator, sharing a little piece of their private mindspace and trusting you and I to let it matter. Sounds like these can only meet somewhere in between. ... more
