Edge Radio Recommended: Arca – Arca

Arca has released his third full-length album via XL Recordings / Remote Control Records. The self-titled record is the Venezuela-born, London-based artist’s first on XL Recordings and follows the release of his two previous albums: 2014’s Xen and 2015’s Mutant.

The album features stunning artwork from long time Arca visual collaborator Jesse Kanda.

Here’s my voice and all my guts: feel free to judge it. It’s like a bullfight: you’re watching emotional violence for pleasure. So this is a character who, almost as a mockery of the transaction, goes uncomfortably deep, into self-mutilation. ‘You want gore? Here’s gore’” – Arca on Arca.
