Churches Schools and Guns. A provocative name for a provocative album of techno from one of the genre’s most consistently intriguing producers, Lucy. This, his second solo album, pushes forward from his debut full-length, 2011’s Wordplay for Working Bees, and firmly establishes him in a league of his own. Over the past few years Lucy’s label, Stroboscopic Artefacts, has became a watchword for techno’s vanguard – providing a platform for new artists pushing at the genre’s boundaries and a harbor for some of the most experimental work from names you already recognize. Lucy’s progress as a producer has followed that same trajectory, moving from relatively straightforward dancefloor-driven material to deeper, murkier places. Churches Schools and Guns continues on, a collection of 12 tracks that sound – more than anything else – like the act of searching.
Amazing. Experimental without cliched darkness or noise, another progression in sound. Have pitched to cover.
What can I say. Blows my mind. Can't pick one, Best 2014 for me I bet.Thanks Lucy.
The darkness and delicacy of this release was unexpected, and it creates a whole mood throughout the release that draws you in. Cinematic in scope and execution, this release harkens back to the best IDM of the Artificial Intelligence Warp days.
Bravo Lucy, great album.
Mystic techno intertwined with social satire directly extracted from Lucy's mind. Great piece of music. Review and interview will follow.

Powerful journey. Looking forward to living with this for a while. Bravo Lucy.
Excited to hear this.
Great music on Lucy's new album, support.
Excellent release from one of our favourite techno producers out there. Mortellaro has consistently managed to imbue the techno framework with deeper meaning, using his expert sound-design skills to create multi-layered works that it is not easy to tire of.
Intense album. Impressive sound design. Difficult to choose a favourite but I love the tracks with the eastern twist ('Follow The Leader', 'Catch Twenty Two') the most.
