Boomkat product review for:

laurel halo - King Felix

**Boomkat upfront exclusive!** Hippos In Tanks have evidently turned out some of the year's most addictively essential releases, but none more so than Laurel Halo's 'King Felix' EP. The Brooklyn-via-Michigan-hailing artist has created waves of interest around her sound that simply cannot be ignored. Obvious comparisons to individual female precedents have inevitably been stirred up, but right now it's quite fair to say that there's nobody else doing quite what she does - and that's an immeasurably important fact. Her music is suspended in an ethereal alter zone equally informed by 4AD dreamspaces, immersive video game soundtracks and hypnagogic Pop, essentially three elements which form much of the best Knew-Pop around and makes for the most deliriously effective form of Pop escapism we've encountered in a long time. A glance at her myspace will reveal an obsession with floatation - pictures of floating gardens, scuba diving and such - and this is about the best analogy for this music, no matter whether she's making an ecstatic Freestyle R&B killer like 'Supersymmetry' or a Baroque gynoid theme tune like 'Metal Confection', there's always the lushest sense that she's crafting her art to help herself achieve and express those states most clearly, and it simply couldn't come out sounding any other way. Probably the only only person she could find to help elucidate this feeling is her synthetic soulmate, Daniel "OPN" Lopatin, who chimes in with one of his most elegiac productions to date, an interzonin' remix of 'Metal Confection'. You may be able to tell, we're more than a little smitten with this debut and by all accounts it seems that this is just the tip of a towering iceberg, drifting in an amniotic ocean of psy-pop simulants...
