Spylacopa, the music project formed by Brooklyn based musician and artist John LaMacchia will release a new album on May 14th. The album titled ‘Beneath The Earth That Lies Beneath The Sea’ is a major departure from most of what the project has released to date with more ties to ambient, electronic and experimental music than earlier material which was informed mostly by post-hardcore, progressive rock and post-metal. In regards to the inspiration of the album LaMacchia added “The title of the album came to me first. This looming question of what exists beneath the earth that lies at the bottom of the deepest ocean. It’s a very frightening thought to me and you can certainly hear that in the music. On the contrary it’s fascinating to think how peaceful it might be. This sacred place, unspoiled by humanity. Once I had the title I just kept creating music with it in mind and I wound up with this body of work.”
Part I – Minauros, the first piece of music off of the album is available to stream at the Spylacopa Bandcamp page.
John LaMacchia had this to add about it “Fans of Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin and Autechre might have a thing to say about it.”
Beneath The Earth That Lies Beneath The Sea is available for pre-order through the Spylacopa bandcamp page as well as a limited run of cassette tapes which includes a HIDDEN BONUS TRACK that will not be included with the streaming or download version. It can be pre-ordered direct through Rising Pulse Records or through the Spylacopa bandcamp page.
