Visual Artist Konx-om-Pax to Release LP via Planet Mu

Glasgow native and fluorescent visual artist Konx-om-Pax (a.k.a. Tom Scholefield) is set to drop a new LP via Planet Mu, entitled Regional Surrealism. You've seen the videos and album art of Konx-om-Pax before; from the color-shocked fantasy worlds of Hudson Mohawke's "Joy Fantastic" and Martyn's "Viper" to sleeve designs for Rustie and Lone, he is a prolific artist with a penchant for hyper-washed hues and fluidly realized environments. Interestingly, it's said that Scholefield "makes music to chill out, a form of creative self medication. In contrast to his bright, synthetic and colourful artwork and videos, his music is more mossy and analogue." The label promises a cinematic experience, as many of the tracks were inspired by the idea of rescoring films and TV with vignettes, spoken word, and more long-form, dramatic pieces in mind. Out on July 23, you can check out the cover art and tracklist for Regional Surrealism below, and listen to snippets of each song here.
