Lapalux 'Ruinism' (Brainfeeder)

An artist who coined his name while in “the lap of luxury” after one too many smokes, Lapalux toys with clanging percussion and sharp vocals on ‘Ruinism’. The operatoric notes of GABI on ‘Data Demon’ will give you chills, while ‘Petty Passion’ is full of minatory distortion. Other highlights include the Louisahhh-featuring ‘Rotten Arp’, the JFDR-assisted ‘Falling Down’ and the TALVI team-up ‘4EVA’ TALVI, with each of his collaborators bringing clarity to his discordant mania. ‘Ruinism’ isn’t a departure from the type of chopped foundations we’ve come to expect from Lapalux, it’s just less thick with haze: both onimous and gorgeous, it’s an album of two halves that tiptoes into a purgatory state.
