Jlin - Autobiography LP
Label: Planet Mu
By now, how Jlin went from working in a steel factory in Gary, Indiana to being one of the most widely appreciated electronic musicians is well known. Black Origami was one of the most reviewed and lauded albums last year. She has toured constantly since its May 2017 release and despite being involved in a wide range of projects, still manages to find a balance and “do some personal healing and growing.”
Here we are over a year later with Autobiography, the score for her collaboration with renowned British choreographer Wayne McGregor. This isn’t technically her third album (that’s due to arrive in 2019 or 2020), but the soundtrack stands up on its own with all the emotional peaks and troughs of a well-sequenced longplayer. Making music for dance is the fulfillment of one of Jlin's lifelong dreams and Autobiography is a highlight in her evolving and growing career.
