Chicago's James N Murray returns to Jacktone with his 2nd album in as many years. The perfect follow-up to the evocative soundtrack, "À Vancouver", Murray wastes no time setting the mood on "City of the Night," - via manipulated and effected field recordings, warm synths and perfectly-punctuated percussion. Notes from the artist: "City of the Night" sets out to explore geographies that have largely faded from sight and mind. Places once populated largely by men, seeking sexual or social contact with other men, located at the peripheries of social and physical space and more often than not, shrouded in the darkness of night and hidden from the eyes of society at large. The music found on "City of the Night" creates a soundscape for this world, crumbling away by the time I entered my early 20s, largely lost to the digital realm and lingering impact of the AIDS crisis. "City of the Night" creates a bridge between my own world and those found in the work of John Rechy’s seminal queer text, "City of Night", originally published in 1963, a novel that follows a hustler on his journey through the cities of El Paso, New York, Chicago, New Orleans and Los Angeles, intertwining our narratives in order to create a fictional landscape for the music. "City of the Night" was created using field recordings, samples, hardware and software over the course of several months in my home studio.
