Many Faces Out Of Focus comprises six brilliantly well produced tracks from 22 year old essex boy Stuart Howard, aka Lapalux. The EP opens with a layered crescendo built on clicks and a seething synth sound, 30 seconds of darkness explodes suddenly into pop hits, tempered with sub bass, set against a sampled and repitched vocal. From this point the EP bathes your brain in lush textures, surprising and explosive atmospheres set in unencountered, unearthly spaces, all somehow perfectly set against catchy rolling choruses informed by pop and commercial R&B.
The cassette was released last week and sold out immediately. It was made available for digital download yesterday, get it here.
