Boomkat Product Review:
Milky kosmiche-pop bubbler from Jane Weaver, backed with the smudged chromatics of a remix by London’s psych allstars, Sex Swing
“Widely considered the standout protonic pop song from Jane Weaver’s unanimously revered Modern Kosmology, The Lightning Back sees the meteoric collision of micro-chip modulations and homespun harmonies courtesy of a self-sufficient artist who has in recent years become regarded as one of the countries finest in the field.
This 3.5 minute pocket-pop implosion fuses subtle patch-bay arpeggios evoking the stylings of Wendy Carlos and (previous collaborator) Suzanne Ciani providing a deftly constructed framework for Weavers songwriting talents. Celebrating the intimacy and inhibition-free methodology found in her solo-power approach, The Lightning Back hears Jane’s yearning lyricism rise through unique agile melodics seldom found in synthesised pop music.
This limited vinyl single also comprises a B-side in the form of a remix from London based art-noise-jazz-rock supergruppen Sex Swing.”
