love me

by lacunae

Dark sliding synth melodies with noise-laden low-fi groove beats and beautifully spoken female vocals. Imagine Skinny Puppy, Gary Numan and Boards of Canada having drinks with Portishead. Broken love songs for broken robots.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"love me" is a collage of driving beats, ethereal synth melodies and aggressive noise built around Kasten's distant, longing voice. She confides in the listener, lost in the manufactured world as her comprehension flickers like a dying fluorescent light. The album runs through the most harrowing parts of losing one's self to love, and reminds us why we always go back.

--------------

lacunae's music falls somewhere between industrial and ambient. Dark sliding synth melodies with noise-laden low-fi groove beats and beautifully spoken female vocals. Broken love songs for broken robots.

History

The members of lacunae have never met.

lacunae began in mid 2003 after a chance meeting on the internet between Kasten Searles, who was working with Arson Bright at the time, and Anthony Peluso.

Their first work, "Making New Errors," is the result of 18 straight hours of Anthony reworking a collection of Kasten and Arson's music. Dark, forboding and intimate, it captures Kasten and Arson's unique, dystopian vision in the grip of Anthony's bleak, pounding production.

This set the tone and process for lacunae. Soon after, the trio began work on their first full length album. "love me" was finally completed in mid 2004.

Currently lacunae is working on their second full length album and contemplating live performance.

Kelly Cornelius for Modsquare

...a cyber world waiting to wake you up with its subversive intensity...
If This Mortal Coil could meet Boards of Canada and share a studio with an obscure industrial act the outcome would be something very much like Lacunae. Certainly this Columbus, Ohio trio exists somewhere between trip-hop and ambient/industrial excursions. Dark waves of sound with synthesis flows over slow soothing beats and distorted vocal samples fall through and in-between.

This collection of sound experiments is very endearing. One must point out here that the members of this group have NEVER met. This fact gives me much respect for the accomplished music on the CD. The pieces are very consistent in sound and quality of sound, though for some the sound could get a tad bit redundant, so be sure you like dark-wave ambient/industrial styles. There lie hidden surprises and mellow melodies waiting to entice you once you begin your travels into this odyssey. There is a lo-fi quality which moves the listener (according to taste of course) further into a world of Lacunae's own creation: a cyber world waiting to wake you up with its subversive intensity. Dive deeper into this sea of pulsating sound and you begin to recover bits and pieces of spoken words which tumble numb-less and stain your mind regardless of whether or not you are paying attention. I sense songs of broken heartedness and dark loneliness that we can all relate to at some time or another. The feeling of not wanting to continue but knowing you must. This inclination may come to mind when listening to the tales within but I do recommend you keep listening! You’ll be very happy you did as this work gets more enthralling and emotional with each track.

This music is worth the money you will spend to obtain a copy. The spiraling journey through cyborg encryption is well worth your efforts!

sweet - quality - suprising - different - buy it!
Pretty sweet album! As soon as I heard it was out, I purchased it because I knew that it would be quality stuff, as I have heard previous works (Which I think was only by one of the members). I wasn't expecting what I heard but was pleasantly suprised. I've never heard anything like it before. I can't wait for upcoming releases. BUY THIS ALBUM!

Quality.
Unique style.

Keep it up guys! amazing job!

Sure beats the pants off a rotting clown!
There's surely a world domination endeavor being served up by the cybortronic makers of "Lacunae." It's all encoded on this CD. You may find other styles of music out there, but the sandwiching of something dark with something secretive, but still leaving you feeling like you just might go out and break up with that stupid girl/boyfriend, or that you really deserve a promotion and you'll tell your boss to cram it if you don't get it. It can also let you slink deeper into the darkness if that girl/boyfriend actually becomes more beautiful, rich and sophisticated later down the road, or when your new burger flipping job after flipping your old job the finger turns out to not be the Zen of capitalist working you figured it would be. As I said to "Lacunae" personally, their's is a music of spices, not meat. Yeah I told them I cracked their secret of cyborg domination too. Huh. You bet I did. Resisting is futile.

a robotic massage to your eardrums
This album is very laid back, and easy to listen to. It is very mechanic, and synthesized, but very rythmic, and trance like. It is very slow and mellow, all while being very heavy and intense at the same time. Think very slow beat, with a mellow tone, but very intense and deliberate sound and meaning.
This is a very different album that is unbelievably good, and I intend on getting a lot of play out of it on my computer...

A beautiful, very solid album
Crunchy rhythms, lush melodies and processed vocals. That is a short summary of what you can except on Love me by Lacunae.

Lacunae is the project of a trio of artists. Arson Bright and Anthony Peluso compose the music, and the vocals of Kasten Searles gives it the finishing touch.

Love Me features 10 strong tracks. Downtempo, triphop-ish music with beautiful vocals. Gritty rhythms and sober, sometimes spacey melodies. Listening to this album, one can easily lose himself/herself in the music, waking only after Bring me back brings you back to reality.

A beautiful, very solid album, that will appeal a lot of people who like downtempo melodic electronica.

NICOLA_ITALY

Downtempo for the next century
A very interesting and original work about the feelings and the soul in a future not so far from now, where tecnnology may replace the human work but can't destroy love and human essence. Fascinating loops and melodies which create a rich range of sensations.
