Written, re-written, recorded and re-recorded over seven years, the sessions making up this album ultimately came together with the help of an assembled group of old friends including Paul Maroon, Matt Barrick, Peter Bauer and Walter Martin from the popular recording and live group, The Walkmen, while producing, engineering and mixing duties were helmed by Quentin himself.
The result is an album chock full of metaphysical news. The group manages to weave classic references with the sound of the future. Embodied within you'll find sweet soft harmonies alongside guitar pyrotechnics and a rhythm section adrift in time signatures recalling Can, Faust, Cluster, you get the picture? Light Heat is without doubt the creative extension of writer Quentins previous efforts yet thanks to the passing of time, the loss of the name Mazarin to… well, another Mazarin. Light Heat is less a new direction for Quentin and much more a new beginning.
Light Heat’s debut self-titled album is out on Ribbon Music, June 25th.
