Striving (and succeeding) and mix both beautiful soundscapes and challenging your ears, Lapsed writes poetic tracks but never falls into kitsch, moves forward and yet is far more than joyless experimentation. Fresh and soulful, two words that well describe this "Twilight". (Get this on CD / as mp3)
Electronic music in the mountains. It is in Salt Lake City, Utah, that Jason Stevens, the sole musician of Lapsed, patiently gave birth to "Twilight", his debut album. Twenty five year old and working since years in a music store, Stevens seems to have found one of the rare ways to come up with something fresh in his music, and not copy anyone: immerse himself in numerous hours of varied, genre-crossing music listening.
Free from pigeonholed influences and closed ears, Stevens's "Twilight" is a new found confluent of sounds too often kept apart. Glitchy, precise and sharp in its beats, and yet thick in its tones. Qualified of "funktastic", "Twilight" puts the groove back in the click, and Lapsed builds new territories made of beats and bits with insolent talent.
