The best new releases and classic re-issues on vinyl
Tall Pop Syndrome
Tall Pop Syndrome is the first new music from Ladder since 2021’s Hijack! and adds new fodder for his song writing canon as he directs his attention completely towards the electronic realm.
Enlisting Kim Moyes of The Presets to oversee the final capture, Tall Pop Syndrome is heavy with synthetic texture, pulsation and atmosphere but defined by a new perspective. Seeking to disrupt the invasion of AI, and dethrone the rule of the algorithm, Jack Ladder has made the most heartfelt and human record with digital tools. Rather than cutting himself down in the tradition of ‘tall poppy syndrome’, the tallest man in music is cutting to the chase, getting to the core of human emotion in 3 minutes.
