So the Lithuanian electronic music scene is a thing. Minidaugas Lapinskis AKA Gardens of God has released Glük on Boso, following up releases on Maceo Plex's Ellum imprint. The three-track EP is characterized by mechanical tones and minimalist house beats supporting slowly arresting melodies. And we got the lead on the visuals for the title track.
There are videos: bikini babes in convertibles, hair waving, fists pumping. Then there are visuals: This video for Gardens of God's "Glük," for example. As the sinister, techy beat builds and recedes, we're thrown into some amorphous, globular other-world, where shapes drip in and out of existence for the entirety.
