Iglooghost is the stage name of Irish producer Seamus Malliagh. Four years after first full-length Neō Wax Bloom, he has announced the release of a new album. Lei Line Eon will be out on April 3rd. He explains: “I have spent the past year researching a lost tradition of my hilltop birthplace called ‘Lei Music.’ This special genre has the ability to summon strange, squeaking entities from invisible zones. These songs are transcribed to special discs called ‘Lei Disks’ – and are now hoarded & traded obsessively by modern-day collectors.
There is no clear explanation of why the performance of Lei Music has such extraordinary effects. Some believe it could be related to a variety of properties unique to Dorset – such as the high concentration of towering granite artefacts, floating pebble circles, and nearby landmarks’ alignments with otherworldly phenomena. The musical instruments that were traditionally played are suspected to have stimulated geoglyphic ley lines – and inadvertently operated as tools that created small rifts between worlds.
I have been working very hard on a new album of modern laptop-based Lei Music, and have been summoning lots of different clattering, shifting and clicking entities. I am excited to show you them very soon.”
