Leafcutter John is back with his first solo record in eight years. When not playing with Polar Bear, he concerns himself with blending noisy glitches, severely effects-chain-altered guitars, and warped, stretched out vocals. Resurrection is the final concoction of a blend of organic instruments, electronic alterations and experimental programming.

9/10 Laurie Staff review, 05 June 2015

It’s been a while since this guy has had a proper release, instead preoccupying himself with contributing various electrobleeps to both Polar Bear and Melt Yourself Down which hardly leaves any time for cutting leaves. He’s pulled himself together for this release though, with 5 deep, lengthy excursions into the world of warped audio.

On Resurrection,  John Burton creates collages both organic and artificial - impossible worlds of hovering synth, guitars ripping apart and twisted bells and voice. They’ll glitch around between these worlds before settling into a soundscape for any amount of time between 5 seconds and 5 minutes, sometimes getting nice and percussive as on ‘I Know You Can’, which is a sort of piece of ambient techno scarred by the remnants of audio experiments and lost vocals. There’s a beautiful moment at the end of the title track, culminating in a slow jam between guitar, ride cymbals and touches of wispy noise that no doubt comes straight from his time in Polar Bear.

The LP is melodically rich and equally indistinct, with only a prevailing emotion defined but elusive on the details. As a result, it’s a fairly emotionally stirring concoction and plays like a good, slightly ominous soundtrack, with the visual element replaced by extensive sample scenes. As a final example of this record’s brilliance, behold ‘Gulp’, a grandiose contrast between a nice solo acoustic clarinet and a wall of 7.1 billion recordings of the North Sea. Ridiculous.
