Spanish duo LCC announce new album Bastet in an ominous, dark ambient whisper

If you followed the hallowed release schedule of Editions Mego back in 2014, you may remember the debut album from the dark ambient project LCC (Spanish producers Ana Quiroga and Uge Pañeda) called d/evolution. If you do, you’ll be happy to know that the duo are returning with their second full-length effort later this year. It’s called Bastet, and it’s out June 16 through—what do you know?—Editions Mego.

For those of you who don’t happen to be ancient Egyptians or cultural anthropology majors, you may be wondering who or what a “Bastet” is. It turns out the name belongs to “the ancient Egyptian goddess closely linked to music and female power who coerced humans to entertain her in order to keep her untamed animalistic side in check” (album release pages are always so helpful with this stuff). LCC apparently tapped into that energy by crafting an album that is “not reliant on pure electronics as abstract theatre, but rather utilizes these tools to conjure a world circling the spheres and planes of symbolic human activity.” That’s good, because I don’t know about you, but it’s one of my biggest pet peeves when artists rely on “pure electronics as abstract theatre.”

“But what does this all mean for me,” you ask? Well, you selfish jerk, it means you can listen to an early taste of Bastet below, alongside the tracklisting, or you can just pre-order the damn thing. Either way, we already got your clicks. Sucker.
