Seen as a nocturnal and corrupted sequel to their previous album, Carn (released last year on Exotic Pylon), the album’s creation was inspired by real and imagined cities from childhood, bathed in traditional folk, found sounds and community chants, celebrations and invocations. Loor (which is Cornish for moon) represents the next ambitious transmission in the expanding audio landscape that Kemper Norton are creating.
The limited first edition of Loor comes with a second disc entitled ‘Salvaged’ – a collection of rarities from the Kemper Norton archives available on CD for the first time.
The songs on Loor are a loose trilogy of nocturnal encounters, searches and awakenings, often with Kemper Norton revisiting old foes from previous albums and encouraging new treacherous encounters.
Hooked from the very start of A1. An incredible concept executed in the best way imaginable, and it’s gonna be talked about for decades. Every track leaves me with a sickening feeling of bleakness, but I can’t stop listening. It evokes an absurd amount of thoughts and emotions without a single word spoken. jek
