Vinyl LP pressing. The Plaintive is the first new album since 2014 by the legendary, and somewhat underrated electronic project of Mark Van Hoen, Locust. Produced intermittently over a 5-year period, the tracks were created with a largely-digital eurorack modular system, alongside a selection of analog synthesizers, notably a newly-acquired Prophet 12 polysynth. While tracks like "If You Knew" and "Out Here" are reminiscent of classic Locust, much of "The Plaintive" shows us a new side to Locust - melodic, playful, and melancholic, with clear nods to the melodic electronic sounds of early pioneers like Cluster, early-Kraftwerk, or even OMD's late-70s output. For Suction's vinyl release of "The Plaintive", we've chosen 10 highlights from the original 15-track digital release, housed in a stunning The Designers Republic LP jacket.
