Download: Klaxons – Landmarks of Lunacy EP

On Christmas Day, Klaxons released the Landmarks of Lunacy EP for free. These are from the ill-fated 2008 sessions with Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford rejected by their label for being ‘too experimental’.

As the band put it:

There are periods of time that we have spent together as a band that the only suitable word that comes close to describing them is “Magical” . The three nocturnal weeks spent at Black Box studio in 2008 under the loving guidance of James Ford was undeniably the point where the magic was peaking…Sometimes the only way to let a story release it’s full power and potential is to offer it up to the universe.

The EP is a grower, a down tempo affair but an interesting listen nonetheless. ‘Marble Fields’ is deserving of individual accolade, experimental yet also very absorbing and engaging – no mean feat.

After the decidedly lackluster Surfing The Void one can’t help but wonder what would have happened if the record company hadn’t stuck their oar in?

    but,,, i like “kissing the void” !! … there are several very good songs on it. songs that are among my top listened to tunes this year.
    Really give the album another listen. The same space, twin flames, echoes are all excellent tracks.
