If that photo up above looks vaguely familiar to you, it’s might be because — A) you remember like six weeks ago when Bristol-based sound-tinkerer Finlay Shakespeare announced his debut EP on Editions Mego — or B) you’re actually dead on an operating table somewhere and are having some weird, M. Night Shyamalan-ish death rattle experience wherein all your synapses just go fucking haywire one last time.

Assuming it’s just the first scenario, you’ll probably be delighted to learn that, even though his EP isn’t even out until November 30, the Bard of Bristol is ALREADY BACK with the announcement of his full-length debut, Domestic Economy — once again sponsored by the Finlay-fanboys at Editions Mego.

The long-player is coming our way as a double-LP on February 1, and, in addition to labeling it as “edgy ecstatic electronic pop” and “a damn near perfect amalgamation of historical respect and contemporary anxiety wrapped in an exquisite song-form package,” Editions Mego also calls it “extraordinary.”

I don’t know about you, but, as a living, breathing, warm-blooded human being, I’ve really developed a keen appreciation for things that are “ecstatic,” “perfect,” and “extraordinary.” So…again: unless you’re dead right now, pre-order Domestic Economy here — and listen to its bouncy-trouncy-flouncy-pouncy opening track “Luleå” down below. You’ll probably find the whole experience relatively exhilarating.
