British Brainfeeder alumni Iglooghost makes narrative music — albeit mostly instrumental (or at least not discernibly in English), as you might recall from his debut album Neō Wax Bloom in which Xjangliao, a gelatinous worm shaped creature (that first emerged in the EP Chinese Nü Year was travelling through time when he was caught in the crossfire of two giant eyeballs colliding with the planet Mamu.

And come August 8, Iglooghost will unveil two new chapters in his ever evolving sonic choose your own adventure story. The pair of EPs Clear Tamei and Steel Mogu comprise a prequel to the devastation that unfolded in Neō Wax Bloom and feature a see-through God in training called Tamei and his friends who find themselves wound up in a hyperspeed, cross-temporal battle with a fleet of mysterious, round beings…all told through Iglooghost’s hyper-manic fusion of footwork, two-step, bass, and plain old bonkers.

Weird on paper? Maybe. Sounds good in headphones? YOU be the judge while you listen to “Niteracer” down below (but we vote yes).
