Last week, solo musician/composer/performance artist Marcus Whale officially released their second full-length record Lucifer, an album that explores the idea of devotion, a recontextualisation of religious rituals and repositioning the titular figure as a queer icon – something other than a malevolent force of evil. To help give better insight into the album’s conceptual foundations and execution, Marcus has offered up an in-depth track-by-track breakdown of Lucifer in its entirety.
Sydney-based producer Phoebe Twigg – also known as Ptwiggs – has followed up her 2019 EP Darkening Of Light with a new three-track effort called Nondualism, out now though electronic label Eternal. Each track amalgamates disparate shards of club music – from dystopian techno to ethereal trance and beyond.
