Alexander Tucker – Don’t Look Away (Ltd. Colored LP+MP3)

Image: 1619793 Don’t Look Away is Alexander Tucker’s third album with Thrill Jockey,
completing what Tucker views as the fnal piece to a trilogy that began
with Dorwytch (2011) and Third Mouth (2012). His music brings a distinct
otherworldliness, bringing the listener beyond the confnes of the physical
world, and, much like the album cover alludes to, collages together
sound that both brings you outside the atmosphere whilst simultaniously
connecting you more closely to the seeds of existence. It is in this direction
that Tucker continues to carve a position as one of Britian’s most forwardthinking songwriters.
Recorded over an extended period in London and mixed inDaniel O’Sullivan’s
Dream Lion Studio, Don’t Look Away emerged during a particularly prolifc
creative period for Tucker. The album fnally came together while Tucker
was in Zürich composing for the Schauspielhaus Zürich, and while he was
establishing UNDIMENSIONED, his own publishing imprint as an active
member of London’s wildly creative independent comic scene. As a result,
Tucker’s wider work feels more present here than on previous recordings
and this shows itself often in the lyrics, which range from relationships,
including the uncomfortable ones we often have with ourselves, to sci-f
imagery and cosmic horror.
The musical landscape of Don’t Look Away is illustrated on the cover’s hand
cut collage, created by Alexander Tucker. Viewing each aspect of his artistic
output, be it visual art, comics or music, less as separate disciplines but
more of as part of one connected whole – Tucker studied at the Slade School
of Fine Art and has always drawn comparison between the layering of paint
and the layering of sound – he explains: “The worlds I evoke through sound
sit alongside the imagery within my comics, drawing and paintings.There
is a melancholia and sadness about the transitory aspects of our earthly
lives, alongside a fascinationwith the beauty and inexplicable nature of
