Jackson Fourgeaud, having vanished without trace, returns eight – EIGHT! – years on from his lauded debut album. Much more vibrant and stylistically expansive than its macabre predecessor, ‘Glow’ finds the enigmatic Parisian taking a more song-based direction. ‘Blow’, Dead Living Things’, ‘Memory’ and the single ‘G.I. Jane’ are all vocal-led pop numbers combining LCD Soundsystem’s guttural anarchy and the impish psychedelia of Mercury Rev. ‘Blood Bust’, ‘Arp #1’ and ‘Pump’ align closer to the nosebleed electro Fourgeaud came to prominence via, while ‘Seal’, ‘Vista’ and ‘Billy’ are towering orchestral scores. Laced with menace and atomically sonic, this second coming is nothing short of a masterclass in dark craft.
