Karlrecords // After their furious debut „Aquanaut“, Leipzig’s LAURENT DE SCHEPPER TRIO release a mature follow up that sees the genre-blending jazz / indie formation heading for new peaks.
4 years have been passing since the LAURENT DE SCHEPPER TRIO unleashed their highly praised debut album „Aquanaut“: „great band“ (De:Bug), „worth listening and important“ (Wolf Kampmann / Eclipsed) or „stunning magnificence!“ (Subjectivisten) were some of the opinions on the Leipzig-based formation whose sound blends fluidly the progressive now-jazz of NILS PETTER MOLVAER, TALK TALK’s ethereal art-pop and the structural freedom of SONIC YOUTH.
„Into Olymp“ – the title as well as the artwork document an extended band trip to Greece in october 2015 – again turns out a corybantic stylistic balancing act, a brilliant symbiosis of jazz and indie, mature serenity and vital dynamics, sublime finesse and high energy. A truly monumental effort, recorded at Ballroom Studios / Dresden, produced by JOHANNES GERSTENGARBE and soundwise refined by REUBEN COHEN / LURSSEN MASTERING in Burbank, California.
lars nagler plays laurent de schepper trio :: this CD is a different kind of a remix album. mainly built out of material from laurent de schepper’s double LP „INTO OLYMP“ it transforms the original music. this happens by putting it in different contexts and thereby opening up new perspectives for the listener. complete restructuring results in a fresh interpretation, something the band itself encouraged.
