Luke Abbott Announces New Album Translate Shares Kagen Sound Listen


Luke Abbott has announced his first solo album in six years. The British electronic artist will release Translate on October 30, via Border Community. Listen to the single “Kagen Sound” below, and check out the artwork, adapted from a drawing by Abbott’s son.

“Kagen Sound” is “named after an American puzzle box maker,” Abbott says in a press release. “He makes the most incredibly intricate wooden puzzle boxes. I’ve been interested in puzzle boxes since I saw Hellraiser when I was about 11 years old, maybe I shouldn’t have seen that film so young. To me the track feels like a a huge opening in the earth, like a cosmic doorway, which is why it’s the opening track on the album.”

Translate follows Abbott’s Holkham Drones follow-up Wysing Forest, released in 2014. Since then, he has recorded under the club alias Earlham Mystics, soundtracked two films (Guy Myhill’s The Goob and Jessica Hynes’ The Fight), released a pair of records with the improv trio Szun Waves, alongside Portico Quartet’s Jack Wylie and PVT’s Lawrence Pike, and put out a collaborative album with the similarly cosmic UK producer James Holden, Outdoor Museum of Fractals / 555Hz.
