Young Irish producer Jack Colleran, who goes under the name of MMOTHS, is highly capable with that smooth and mournful style of modern electronica: soulful vocals and cavernous synths over a steady beat. Luneworks is his debut full-length album, following a few years building up a reputation. CD release on Because Music.
9/10 Jamie Staff review, 08 March 2016
It has been one of those mornings so far, today. You know the type - mournful and filled with smooth, soulful electronica. Amongst other bits. Those three adjectives most accurately describe the overall feel of this record. Particularly the mournful, soulful part.
The work of young Dublin-based producer Jack Colleran is new to my ears. Very pleasant it is, too. Nice falsetto vocals overladen with electronics which wouldn't be out of place on an edgy shoegaze record; twinkling synth, staccato-crunching beats and warm undulating currents and punchy, bassy pulse on "Eva" - emotionally charged vocal and headspace-filling ambience to pleasingly distorted levels. "Para Polaris" and "Deu" are perfection. Crepuscular sounds for that shady netherworld between (very) late night and even earlier mornings in Spring, now that our days genuinely do feel longer, more elongated.
It's like Boards of Canada upping the ante here. Jacks vocals are another instrument in total harmony with his crafted, sculpted electronic sound-world. A warm crescendo of screechy ambience fills out and fades.
