“Laura is Fading” by Jesse Ruins // A Film (Out Now via Lefse Records)
It feels like it’s been a while since I last heard the spaced out electro-shoegaze of Jesse Ruins. Luckily, the Tokyo trio is back with a new album on Lefse Records that is brimming with swirling synths, pulsing beats, and otherworldly ambiance. “Laura is Fading” is the first taste of the newly released album, and it’s pretty special. A sturdy electro beat pulsates through reverberating synth lines, while a warped vocal track floats above buzzing electro textures. It all comes together effortlessly, sounding like a cross between “Dead Cities…” era M83 and “10,000 Hz Legend” era Air - which, if you ask me, is quite an excellent sound. Highly recommended.
