Boomkat Product Review:
**Lossless format for this release contains 24 bit audio** John Burton reanimates his Leafcutter John alias with a lushly melancholic and psychedelic new LP for Desire Path Recordings. Since his last solo album, 'The Forest And The Sea', John has not only performed electronics with Mercury award-winning jazz explorers, Polar Bear, but has also appeared live with Beck Hansen and Imogen Heap, beside composing for theatre productions such as 'Crow' by the creators of War Horse. With 'Resurrection' he rekindles the embers of his much-loved folktronica output for Planet µ in the early '00s. The result is an immersive suite of five extended pieces structured with diaphanous, DMT-like dimensions and microscopic attention to detail hugely benefitting from his bespoke software and the unique tone of his self-built instruments. With the morphing titular opener he nods to the influence of Parmegiani's 'De Natura Sonorum' as much as the eldritch pastoralism of Coil and Forest Swords' lonely guitar licks, whilst 'I Know You Can' unfurls knotted techno patterns and vocal convolutions in mystic whorls; 'Muysic Under The Water' feels out the difference between Alice Coltrane and Fennesz, and 'Gulps' banks a soaring flux of complex, hyaline harmonics up there with Tim Hecker.
