Following closely on the heels of his ravishing solo album Tomorrow is Too Late, Stockholm-based synthesist and improviser John Chantler switches gears to unleash the stunning second album by his trio with saxophonist Seymour Wright and drummer Steve Noble, Atlantis.
A limited edition clear vinyl version of Even Clean Hands Damage The Work is now available for pre-order from ROOM40.
I’ll also have some copies here on black vinyl sometime in June. You can listen to the first part of the record via the soundcloud embed above…

“Hearing this music for the first time has a similar impact to the first exposure to Oval’s Systemisch from 1994, or the early Sähkö recordings like Ø’s Metri, in that it has a beauty partly derived from having travelled beyond the reach of human influence” – Rob Young, The WIRE
“the success in transforming the intractable modular synthesizer into an emotional, protean creature is one of Chantler’s greatest strengths” Isaac Aronson, Foxy Digitalis
