Hermetically sealed and revelling in tumult, All Tense Now Lax is the significantly developed new work forged by Liberez.
Based in main orchestrator John Hannonʼs remote studio No Recordings in Rayleigh, Essex, Liberez have expanded their palette from previous outings on Alter (Helm, Cremation Lily) to produce a flawlessly engineered machine that consumes the beholder. An all-consuming album of frightening power that will see release on Night School Records on July 24th.
A tense, gut-wrenching listen wrought with carefully considered space, the range of techniques and the depth of atmosphere on All Tense Now Lax has the capability to enthral. Salient sonic ingredients swirl around chamber music drone, flowing in to chalky noise rock, and exposed to charged particles of feedback and thrumming currents. The shrouded origins of these sounds, worn down and coated in Hannon’s priceless patina, mean All Tense Now Lax never settles on a simple depiction of dread, foreboding or anxiety but layers textures upon rhythms to produce towering minarets of conflicting, affecting emotion. Wailing violins are torn across the sparse clarity of lyric from collaborator Nina Bosnic, looping beats are interjected with the primitive percussion of Pete Wilkins, and become crushed with distortion. Chapters of palpitating intensity slowly unwind from the group’s spool, underlining a more pronounced focus on rhythm and movement on Liberezʼ third album that is perhaps what sets it most apart from previous work.
LISTEN TO GREASE THE AXELS
John Hannonʼs breadth of technical mastery on All Tense Now Lax is never fully revealed in an ostentatious way. Rather, the album is allowed to breathe and evolve, with field recordings, industrial patterns and alienated instrumentation woven together seamlessly for a tumultuous experience which transports rather than grounds the participant.
