Grey Lantern team up with Soup Kitchen to bring back to Manchester recent ATP signings Vision Fortune, in support of their immersive second record Country Music!
Distinct, unmistakable and insular, Vision Fortune concoct a music that triggers an intriguing visual state, cinematic images forming from a sound that harnesses precision minimalist counter melodies and rhythmic hypnosis with disorientating production techniques.
Recorded during an intense two-month research residency, generously funded by the Cuatroquesos Foundation, in the idyllic yet remote region of Tuscany, Italy, Country Music is both a significant development and audible departure from the sound of the band’s debut Mas Fiestas con el Grupo Vision Fortune.
Described as “impressively brutal” by the NME in their 8/10 review, the band says of the album, “It was pretty isolated and things got weird after a while – whether this shows in the music is up to the listener.” They suggest listening to Country Music “in your living room, on a large speaker system (preferably with the addition of a few bass bins), late at night, feeling apprehensive, possibly naked, the heating cranked to max, drinking a White Russian, Carlito’s Way playing on the TV (on mute), squatting in a paddling pool filled with lukewarm water. Otherwise a decent pair of headphones will do.”
