about

Body Is Working is the debut album by Living Body, a new project from Leeds-based Chicagoan multi-instrumentalist Jeff T. Smith (formerly, Juffage), featuring longtime collaborators Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Beasts), and Tom Evans (Vessels). The album will be released on digital download / CD / 12" vinyl on Friday 2nd December via ourselves in the UK, and Kingfisher Bluez in Canada / US.

Living Body came into fruition after the musicians took part in a one-off performance, a live event aptly titled 'Sonic Cauldron'. Here, audience members were positioned within the immersive sensory confines of a large, purpose-built circular PA system. Smith also specifically designed a computer programme to distribute the sound of the musicians playing in real time around the perimeter of the venue - a deconsecrated church in the heart of residential Leeds.

Following the concert, the project grew into a new live group, augmented by additional members Alice Rowan (Mayshe-Mayshe) and Sarah Statham (Esper Scout). As a result, Living Body sees Smith’s previous solo project evolve from the unbridled spectacle of live performances based on live looping and super-colossal multitasking into a direct and focused approach, with emphasis on honest and immediate bulletproof songwriting. Anchored by Smith’s vision of music as a means of bringing joy into the lives of others, Body Is Working distills an endless fascination with the entanglement of pop and noise/drone forms into an impeccably unified, cohesive entity.
