VULPIANO RECORDS, J.G. Hackett – Shadow Torture (VULP-0055)

(VULP-0055) The second single pulled from J.G. Hackett’s The Sins of Science, Shadow Torture is a stand-out track from the release, grandiose and somehow pretty and fragile at the same time, perhaps because of the lyrical content and intent behind the song. Hackett says: “This piece reflects on the difficulties of coping with internal pain and anxiety while trying to maintain an outer aura of competence – “I want nothing more than a stable mind, tired of waiting for justice.” Also presented here is b-side “Knife” and an instrumental of “Shadow Torture”.

VULPIANO RECORDS, J.G. Hackett – The Sins of Science (VULP-0053)

J.G. Hackett – The Sins of Science (VULP-0053) Following recent Vulpiano Records single Bootleg Romanticism, here comes J.G. Hackett with his first album for the label in 3 years. The Sins of Science is designed to be as overproduced as possible. My inspiration for this was Tears for Fears’ 1989 album The Seeds of Love, which has always been one of my absolute favourites. The album is packed with glossy, infectious tunes that could all be potential radio hits. Indeed, the opener “Shadow Torture” is full of the kind of pomp you would expect from such a description, cinematic and glorious. “Our Last Chance” is wistful and more than a little Manic Street Preachers Lifeblood era-esque. “A Higher State” is mystical, a kind of neo-psychedelic, twinkling Talk Talk. “Feel the Pain” has an unusual structure, with a haunting and driving bassy riff repeating throughout despite the up-beat nature of the instrumentation otherwise – the lyrics tell the story properly: “You played with knives too often to care You build your soul with none to share You fade into the gray We’re never gonna make it – alright?” – while “Breaking” is a sweet and melodic bright piano tune. “The Sins of Science” appears to be a call to question faith and devotion, and appeal to reality and sonically a great representation bringing together the whole of the album. The Sins of Science closes with “Homecoming”, a warm and sentimental piece. All in all, the album is an incredible release from an independent artist and I am honored to have J.G. Hackett as part of the Vulpiano roster.

1. Shadow Torture: This piece reflects on the difficulties of coping with internal pain and anxiety while trying to maintain an outer aura of competence – “I want nothing more than a stable mind, tired of waiting for justice”.

2. Bootleg Romanticism: This song is all about my failed adolescent attempts at writing art-pop with a friend – “and all our architects and axioms could never make us whole”.

3. Our Last Chance: One of the defining traits of adults is a lack of ability to stop and appreciate the moment. The importance of realising that the present will never come again is the main theme of this song. “This could be our final time, let’s get it right together and keep away the shadows of forever.“

4. Higher State: A mood piece reflecting the tumultuous state of our minds – the various states we can experience, sometimes within the space of a few minutes (or in this case, around 5 minutes!).

5. Feel The Pain: “You won’t stop to feel the pain, you never tried to explain”. This number covers the hurt and questioning that follows the end of a friendship. 6. Breaking: This piece is all about mental illness – “everything inside you is breaking”. 7. The Sins Of Science: One man’s questioning of his religious upbringing. Who’s responsible? The Sins of Science! “They are yours”. 8. Homecoming: My wife and I have a shared ambition to move to the country and enjoy peace, space and tranquility. This song is a heartfelt exploration of that desire.

VULPIANO RECORDS, J.G. Hackett – Bootleg Romanticism (VULP-0052) 

 

J.G. Hackett – Bootleg Romanticism (VULP-0052)

Bootleg Romanticism is J.G. Hackett’s first release for Vulpiano since Trans-Racial Impression back in 2011. This single contains “Bootleg Romanticism” and b-side “Across the Ages”, both slick and catchy and nodding towards the tropes of rock production. The release is in anticipation of his upcoming album, The Sins of Science, nearly four years in the making. Hackett says:

The album this comes from – “The Sins of Science”, is designed to be as overproduced as possible. My inspiration for this was Tears for Fears 1989 album The Seeds of Love, which has always been one of my absolute favourites.The song is about my early days trying to write songs with a friend. We were often overambitious beyond our talents so within the lyrics are references to the titles of the songs we wrote at the time.

VULPIANO RECORDS, J.G. Hackett – Trans-Racial-Impression (VULP-0023)

VULP-0023 is British synth pop/rock artist J.G. Hackett’s third album, Trans-Racial-Impression. In an era of exciting electronic experimentation combined with nods to retro synth styles, this album not only fits in but goes more than a little beyond expectation. With catchy beats and rhythm (“State of Flux”, “Too Many Times”) appearing alongside more harrowing numbers (“Johnny Drank His Own Future”) and truly stand-out tracks that deserve repeating, the previously highlighted “Dereliction” and moving closers “Where To Next?” and more organic sounding “Epitaph of the Architect”. The first album release for Vulpiano Records in the new year is one I’m quite proud of.
