Listeners set the price of the new album.
UK-based producer Jon Gooch started Spor in 2006; a drum & bass project that helped shape electronic’s harder, more aggressive sound. After a long hiatus, Spor is resurrected. Caligo, Gooch’s new project under Spor, is as sinister and beautiful as you’d expect.
Caligo opens with “Your Murmuring Chasms”, an echoey, hazy introduction, before ‘Empire’ – a heavy, guitar-laden cut – sets the pace for the rest album with aggressive drums and gritty vocals. “After The Flood” slices through the darkness; a single, standout, ethereal voice. The album ends with “Hole Where Your House Was”; the menace lingers.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to work on the project”, explains Spor. “I wanted to make sure I was doing it for my own reasons. Not to fill a space or do it just to appease people. I wanted to make sure that by the time I came back to doing it I felt as enthusiastic as I did previously about the music.”
Today, Spor is releasing Caligo as a pay-what-you-want project exclusively on BitTorrent Bundle. Download or stream the album for free. Or, name your own price to unlock it; supporting the artist directly. Get the Caligo Bundle.
