Churches Schools and Guns Artwork

Churches Schools and Guns. A provocative name for a provocative album of techno from one of the genre’s most consistently intriguing producers, Lucy. This, his second solo album, pushes forward from his debut full-length, 2011’s Wordplay for Working Bees, and firmly establishes him in a league of his own. Over the past few years Lucy’s label, Stroboscopic Artefacts, has became a watchword for techno’s vanguard – providing a platform for new artists pushing at the genre’s boundaries and a harbor for some of the most experimental work from names you already recognize. Lucy’s progress as a producer has followed that same trajectory, moving from relatively straightforward dancefloor-driven material to deeper, murkier places. Churches Schools and Guns continues on, a collection of 12 tracks that sound – more than anything else – like the act of searching.

  • FACT Mag Amazing. Experimental without cliched darkness or noise, another progression in sound. Have pitched to cover.
  • Luke Slater What can I say. Blows my mind. Can't pick one, Best 2014 for me I bet.Thanks Lucy.
  • XLR8R The darkness and delicacy of this release was unexpected, and it creates a whole mood throughout the release that draws you in. Cinematic in scope and execution, this release harkens back to the best IDM of the Artificial Intelligence Warp days.
  • Kangding Ray Bravo Lucy, great album.
  • La Chroniquotheque Mystic techno intertwined with social satire directly extracted from Lucy's mind. Great piece of music. Review and interview will follow.
  • Tommy Four Seven Powerful journey. Looking forward to living with this for a while. Bravo Lucy.
  • Resident Advisor Excited to hear this.
  • Pfirter Great music on Lucy's new album, support.
  • Stray Landings Excellent release from one of our favourite techno producers out there. Mortellaro has consistently managed to imbue the techno framework with deeper meaning, using his expert sound-design skills to create multi-layered works that it is not easy to tire of.
  • Ancient Methods Intense album. Impressive sound design. Difficult to choose a favourite but I love the tracks with the eastern twist ('Follow The Leader', 'Catch Twenty Two') the most.
