Paula Temple - Edge Of Everything (2LP Gatefold + DL)

nmlp001Debut Album from Paula Temple -  Paula Temple presents her long-awaited debut album Edge Of Everything . The result of years spent ruminating on the healing powers of harsh noise, she employs a cinematic textural palette for a call to action in desperate times. The album will be available via her own Noise Manifesto imprint as a 2xLP vinyl and digital release on May 3rd. Across twelve tracks, Paula applies warped aesthetic distortions to a broad exploration of techno. Industrial, determined and fostering a deep sense of urgency, Edge Of Everything encourages a New Release Information refocusing of the dominant political narrative, spurring its audience with the direct message that oppressive forces must be held accountable for their actions. As an antidote to apathy, Paula targets raw emotion, urging us to act upon injustice. Sonically, the album focuses on darker manifestations of the genre, appreciating their frankness without trying to confuscate. Murky acoustics and grainy synths writhe through cavernous spaces whilst marching drums enforce an unrelenting pressure. Brandishing a rich tapestry of noise, Paula highlights the healing powers of darkness, drawing strength from anger and motivation from hurt. Fast percussion and expansive sound design command attention throughout, immersing the listener in a frenzied swirl of acoustic treatments and sinister, albeit strangely inviting textures.
