Robert Bloemkolk If anyone would ask me what music reflects the second decade of the twentyfirst century, I guess I would play this album. Favorite track: Practice of Hygiene.

Thiago Outro álbum que foi amor à primeira vista. Gosto de praticamente todas as músicas, cada uma parece um universo diferente. Favorite track: Plate of Order.

Camryn Marquez Records like this are of the most empathetic to be released. A lot of music attempts to achieve aestheticization by appealing to general tropes that have been time-tested and ultimately age as retro, but this record's tradition, while not unprecedented, is never going to be as uniform as to fall into that catalog. There is a great deal of consolation to be found in this isolated intimation of grotesque body horror. Favorite track: The Nerve Meter.

Culminating as the purgative ‘finale’ to her improvisational live performances, Pan Daijing’s debut album also offers an insight to her future works. The process was intuitive and raw, born out of her previous explorations. Over the past 2 years, she has composed, recorded and edited different concerts and field recordings across Europe, China, and Canada, forming the basis of the record. Arriving as her first full-length album, ‘Lack 惊蛰’ was crafted from this long, painstaking mental and physical practice.

Daijing’s pieces are created around a very intense and intimate mental catharsis, often expressed through a close physical interaction with strangers in her live sets which seek to engage them in a highly personal way. “When I was finalising this album, they didn’t feel like tracks to me anymore, but more like a psychoanalytical process,” she says. “I saw myself being this absurd, mad person ‘acting’ out the sounds… It’s rather physical, and became like a mindgame. All things came out naturally as part of me.”

The narrative of the album presents a perspective of the world as ‘the theatre of our minds’ – where Daijing sees the record as an ‘opera piece’ in its storytelling and drama.

The release is mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M, featuring photography by Ralf Marsault, and artwork by Bill Kouligas.
