Montréal-based multi-disciplinary artist Markus Lake is an active force in the city’s DIY music community who’s been releasing solo audio works under the Markus Floats moniker over the past decade – alongside playing bass in wide range of punk, post-punk, experimental and Afrofuturist outfits. Through-composed and unfailingly expressive, his Constellation debut Third Album blends an incantatory, exploratory, desecrated dark lounge (referencing organ sounds of alternately liturgical and souljazz resonance) with more formal touchstones of electronic composition, where arpeggiators surface and recede amidst shifting drones, distortions and dissonances. Third Album is a wonderfully idiosyncratic work of aural Abstract Expressionism where melodic gestures, sequenced pulses, atonal clusters and granulated textures are arranged like shapes and strokes of timbral hue and depth.
