about

The static between stations. The space between all the zeros and ones. The point of no return.
Iglomat thrives in this transitional realm. The cross-continental recording project operates across landlines, highways, and hard drives – chronicling tales of distance and time.
Such efforts would normally lose some spontaneity and urgency in the transfers. But consider Iglomat’s pedigree: producer David Jack, a beat chemist praised by no less authority than John Peel (just check his Peel Session); esteemed instrumentalist Matt Alsberg of Antimc; longtime collaborator Scott MacDonald; and acclaimed photographer Sandy Carson, whose narrative focus comes through as much on record as it does in print.
The band’s second album, Super Complication, was pieced together over the better part of a year, the files travelling from Edinburgh to Austin to Los Angeles and back again. The resulting 13 tracks are a work of patience and restraint, striking a balance between the ambient soul of Boards of Canada, the Octopus Project’s sophisticated playfulness, and the cresting tension of Mogwai.
There are deep, medicated grooves and purposefully rough patches. It’s the sort of record that reveals something different every time—circumstantial, temperamental, and yet somehow definitive.
