Quest For Fire

Axel Boman

Quest For Fire

Like its companion, Luz, Quest for Fire casts house and underground dance music as a kind of modern psychedelia, shifting emotional registers with a fluency that makes obvious feelings seem a little less familiar. Listen to how the tropical vibe of “Stone Age Jazz” warps into the ominous “Cacti Is Plural,” for example, or the mellow disco of “Regret Lasagna” (that title!) ramps up to the almost comically intense “Jeremy Irons.” The appeal isn’t just that Boman can sell the transitions, but that his music feels equally defined by each mood—a range that sets him apart, house or otherwise.
