E.R.P. – Lunar Ruins – 12″ (HCS996) (2017 Repress)
After his critically acclaimed Frustrated Funk releases Alsoran and Vox Automaton in 2007, Gerard Hanson returns to la familia frustrada to drop yet another selection of his finest material. Again 2 releases. This time starting with Harbour City Sorrow followed later with a 12 inch on Frustrated Funk. >Lunar Ruins< shows his deeper side again with skillfully crafted tracks loaded with fragile moments of elegance and beauty. The title track is already known from his amazing live sets, and was recorded around the same period as Alsoran. Typical E.R.P. basslines combined with tear jerkin strings. With Into The Distance Gerard shows his love for the early DMay sound and programming style. The final track Mimosa Canopy is an experimental minimalistic track with warm pads, clean production and lots of tweaking freakyness. Great release again from our humble Texan friend.
