Equal parts dub, reggae, hip-hop, minimalist, electronic, ESG, and post-punk–a genre-breaking album that jumps quickly from sound to sound, with no single theme or melody controlling any part of the record for more than a minute or so. And the listener’s experience is made even more unstable because each song is under three minutes. Some well-under that limit. And the entire thing is less than a half hour. But in these days of overstuffed albums, I found this a welcome change.
Very interesting listen. Basslines give way to breathy vocals, clipped by a sound byte or electronic beep-and-boop…You’re constantly off-center.
Think Nenah Cherry, Santigold, M.I.A.,
Apparently, this is Eva Moolchan’s third album–but it’s the first for me.
