Repressed. Pitchfork: Best New Music. Nearly a decade after the release of his breakthrough debut album Family Vacation (2013), Axel Boman returns with astonishing force: two albums, titled LUZ and Quest for fire, will drop simultaneously and in one package. Containing nine songs each and featuring guests like Off The Meds frontman Kamohelo, Baba Stiltz, Bella Boo, Man Tear, Miljon, and saxophonist Kristian Harborg, the two albums are separate but corresponding works, communicating through music, design and words. Together with long time collaborators Robin Ekemark (design) and Erik Lavesson (words and art direction), Axel has spearheaded a project with plenty of layers available to those that dig deep. Erik writes: "For Axel's two albums, we wanted to build on the music to create a kind of expanded universe. If you just want to listen to the music, it's all there and you don't have to look any further. If you want to go deeper, you have these extra layers to delve into: album art, text, archive material. They feed back into the music and open up new perspectives, while the music opens up ways to enter the other material as well." Erik's text "Brandenburger Ulam" will accompany the album project's physical release, with both records arriving together in a limited triple vinyl package, allowing for the full experience of Robin's design. Includes download.
