Smash (Jackson and His Computerband album). Smash is the debut studio album by Jackson and His Computerband. It was released via Warp in 2005.
Eight long years ago, before everyone went doolally for the disco revival, Parisian producer Jackson Fourgeaud released his twitchy French electro-disco debut album, ‘Smash’. Many hyped him as the next in a long line of innovators on esteemed electronica label Warp Records – and then he dropped off the radar without a trace. God knows what he’s been up to since then, but by the sounds of his superb second album, ‘Glow’, it was a lot more interesting than anything most normal people have been doing.
Exceptional as this song is, it is just the tip of the iceberg.
For roughly eight minutes, Jackson and His Computerband‘s sophomore LP, Glow, glides through the beautiful, but over-saturated, post-dubstep canyon. Although hailing from Paris (there is actually no band aside from Jackson Fourgeaud and his electronics) adjacent tracks Seal and Dead Living Things listen like an amalgam of the best in British indie-dance since 2008: blending creeping basslines, distorted vocals, lullaby instrumental samples, and emotive echoes to form lush dreamscapes. A small percentage of mimicry would be understandable had Fourgeaud been rushed to complete the album, but after eight years, one would expect Fourgeaud to grow more comfortable in the complexities and off-kilter sound design of his debut.
