Muffled, shapeshifting noise is at the center of Jon Eriksen’s sound, with melodies bleeding and breaking through walls of breathy, warm distortion. On Shadowanthems, Eriksen slowly pushes and manipulates fragments of electronica through waves of fuzz and feedback, letting them rub up against undulating strings and power-starved synths.
Mastered for vinyl and digital by James Plotkin, and released by ELM Recordings (US) and Norwegian Megatrends (NO)Shadowanthems is Eriksen’s most fulfilled work to date.
Available as 12”white vinyl with digital download
"Demonstrating a similar interest in the biomechanics of Menche, and without the totalizing experience of overt Noise worshippers, Eriksen’s rescaling of harsh patches within the rhythmic grid evokes the new generation of electronica on the Invada label, where the maturing technology of noise is returned to a rediscovered context of musicality." —Animal Psi
