A huge return from Sam Shepherd as Floating Points with Crush, his first album in four years and his first with Ninja Tune. It twists whatever you think you know about him on its head again.
Available as a limited Indie Shop Exclusive Edition - 140g black vinyl housed in an glossy sleeve with exclusive alternate cover art. Artwork printed inside and out, 4 page A4 booklet featuring a score of album track ‘Birth’. Download code included.
A tempestuous blast of electronic experimentalism with some of Shepherd’s heaviest, most propulsive tracks yet, nodding to the UK bass scene he emerged from in the late 2000s, such as the dystopian low-end bounce of previously shared striking lead single ‘LesAlpx’ but also some of his most expressive songs with his signature melancholia.
It’s the sound of the many sides of Floating Points finally fusing together: the carefree selector, the considered composer and the passionate label curator.
