Jackson and His Computerband Readies Sophomore LP for Warp
Believe it or not, Boards of Canada isn't the only Warp-signed artist to release an album in 2005 and then wait eight years to issue its follow up. That distinction also belongs to French outfit Jackson and His Computerband, whose genre-splicing Smash LP wowed electronic music fans on the hunt for heavily textured sound design and crunchy beatwork before he promptly returned to relative obscurity. But all of that is primed to change when the producer born Jackson Fourgeaud drops his second album, Glow. The 12-track LP is scheduled for release on September 3, and if the preview embedded below is any clear indication, the record will offer the same kinds of intricately detailed and high-definition production as its predecessor. Leading up to the unveiling of Glow, Jackson and His Computerband will hit the road for a string of tour dates this summer. The current list of performances can be found below, along with the artwork, tracklist, and trailer for Glow.
