First Listen: Becker & Mukai – Elagabalus’ Lament
This week marks the new release of a project which has been long in the tooth. Jean-Gabriel Becker and Susumu Mukai are two London based musicians whom have managed to build firmly established careers via an array of projects and works. Between the pair of them they contribute and play in some six different groups and have released music across a variety of spectrums.
The pair first began collaborating as a duo last year, attending regular sessions with the hope that they might eventually stumble across a body of work of which they could truly call their own. "Eyes" is the result, a new album scheduled for release this Friday on SAS Recordings. Colourful, and original the album draws from an array of influences – krautrock, acid, house and jazz all blend together in a mystical fusion and equate to a special release.
