Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds) is Yves Tumor’s fourth album. It follows Heaven To A Tortured Mind, released in 2020.
The album spans rock, psychedelia, and electronica in a what’s a re-invention of pop music, ambitiously shifting and altering the boundaries of contemporary art and culture. It opens with “God Is a Circle,” which came out in November and underlines the album’s “intoxicating melange of addictive melodies and adventurously executed arrangements.”
Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds) follows on from Tumor’s 2021 EP, The Asymptotical World. It’s produced by Noah Goldstein, known for working with the likes of Frank Ocean, Rihanna and Bon Iver, and mixed by Alan Moulder, who has previously worked on releases for My Bloody Valentine and Nine Inch Nails.
Alongside the announcement, Warp has also shared the video for “Echolalia,” shot by Tumor’s longtime collaborator Jordan Hemingway that pays a transgressive, gory homage to Gulliver’s Travels.
