Stacian’s Night School debut, Person L has had a long gestation period, a true labour of love, and is now shipping. We’re extremely proud of this release, it represents a fully realised vision by Oakland based Dania Luck, a cold wave pop record riddled with techno excursions and analog electronics.
Beginning in the American Mid West, Stacian has been an ongoing Bay Area concern since 2008, deeply involved in the minimal wave and underground electronic music scene. A dystopian vision of alienated humanity, broken communications and technoid mal-forms, Person L is her most fully developed full length and a leap forward from 2012’s Songs For Cadets. Moving away from the primitive Cold Wave of previous work, Person L manages to create a bleak dystopia without relying on Ballardian cliche, though still invoking concrete prisons and urban disassociation. Person L is a throbbing, murky underworld that revels in imperfections, a submersive, digital swamp bleeding through the club.
