Headlock announces sophomore album for Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Following the release of his self-titled debut in 2013, New York-based ambient artist Lou DiBenedetto announces the release of his second album as Headlock on Lamin Fofana’s Sci-Fi & Fantasy imprint.

Consisting of 10 tracks, ‘Dragged Away‘ is said to be “the first of several forthcoming albums recorded by DiBenedetto after a cathartic creative breakthrough last summer.” It also marks the re-emergence of Sci-Fi & Fantasy after a two year hiatus.

“Written and composed in memory of friends Stanley Belliard and Rob Case, Dragged Away evokes the warmth of a friendship before taking a more bracing, urgent turn that suggests a struggle lurking under the surface. The closing comes to terms with what remains and speaks to something elemental—a spirit taking over the ocean and the sky, visiting in a dream, occupying an instrument. A happy delusion, perhaps.”

‘Dragged Away’ is scheduled for release 30 July via Headlock. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
