Here at ThinkSoul25, we had the privilege of sharing with you the exciting news that Chris Lawhorn’s fifth studio album, Fugazi Edits, will be released at the end of this month on the 30th.
Well for those fans anxious to hear more about the project, which features Fugazi samples that have been authorized by Ian Mackaye, we’ve been given a sneak peek at the album. So if you’re wondering the reasons why you should buy this album when it’s released, then let me tell you that it’s a superb experimental album that not only has a great vibe, but the profits go to a pair of charities. So not only are you getting your hands on good music, but you are also helping out charities that Fugazi supports and is passionate about raising awareness for.
I’ve had the opportunity to listen to the album in it’s entirety, and Lawhorn does a superb job at keeping that Fugazi-inspired atmosphere, but he brings forth a new perspective to the samples; the album is more than a mashup of samples, it’s a form of creative expression that is fresh. His perspective throughout the album takes a form of a straight-forward approach, while other tracks are driven by organic experimentalism.
The album has a lot of good tracks to listen to, especially if you are a fun of a post-hardcore rock type sound which is parallel with the music of Fugazi. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the album or are curious what is in store, then check out two of the samples at Lawhorn’s website. Click here to check out the samples.
As aforementioned, the album will officially be released on October 30th on Chris Lawhorn’s label, Case/Martingale. The album has 22 instrumental tracks on it and it’s been in the making for almost two years! For an album two years in the making, I must say it’s very good! You can tell that he didn’t just haphazardly throw together samples; Lawhorn knew exactly what he was doing on each track, even when he decides to experiment with various sounds.
