Evian Christ announces new EP Waterfall and London launch party details, invites you to come to his house to watch the Winter Olympics in the meantime

Boy, the more I poke around on the internet, the more everyone keeps telling me that the work of Evian Christ (a.k.a. UK producer Joshua Leary) “eludes any sort of easy categorization.” And you know what? Who the hell am I to argue with pretty words like those? I’m just not even going to try to discover or explain shit to you about what he sounds like.

Instead I’m just going to say that the dude (who has apparently recently spent his time working on Kanye’s Yeezus, collaborating with conceptual artist Matthew Barney, and performing around town with peeps like Purity Ring, Actress, and Four Tet) has got a new EP coming out on March 17. It’s his first release since 2012’s Kings and Them mixtape (I know, I know; there’s probably some descriptions of the “sound” of that mixtape in that piece, but just ignore those); and it’s all coming at us via Tri Angle Records as a digital download and limited-edition vinyl. I’ll also tell you that he recorded some of it in his hometown of Ellesmere Port, UK and some of it out in New York, and that it was subsequently mixed by Noah Rubin (Pusha T, Wu-Tang Clan) and mastered by Heba Kedry (The Mars Volta, Liturgy, Fis); but THAT sure as heck doesn’t clear too much up, now does it?

Nope, to truly find out what this guy’s all about, you’ll just have to attend the celebratory “Trance Party” that he’ll be throwing at London’s Oval Space on March 21. Travis Scott, Millie & Andrea (Andy Stott and Miles Whittaker), Lil Silva, Sophie, Powell, and Mssingno will all be doing stuff there. You know some of them, maybe, right? Ooh, isn’t the suspense is just killing you!?

(Okay, fine; I suppose you could grab the first single, “Salt Carousel”, off of iTunes right now, or even just listen to it below and spoil the mystery now and forever. Me? I’m gonna keep this willful ignorance going for a while. It’s fun.)

Waterfall tracklisting:
