rites wild - Ways Of Being
Not Not Fun must be like some kind of electro-magnet for weirdy lo-fi synth types, as they've manage to dig up yet another one in Adelaide's Stacey Wilson aka Rites Wild. After a slew of self-released EPs 'Ways of Being' is Wilson's debut full-length, and quickly makes a case for her doomy, low-lit minimalism. There are songs in there somewhere, but Wilson's vocals are shrouded in overdrive and reverb to the point where it sounds almost as if she's beaming them in from just beyond the black rainbow. Like a deathly fusion of pre-rawk Religious Knives and a melted cassette copy of Silent Servant's recent heavy-hitter 'Negative Fascination', 'Ways of Being' has no trouble ingratiating itself to the world of basement electronics, but does so with an almost meditative sense of calm and togetherness. In fact there are whispers of early Popul Vuh in Wilson's almost spiritual organ ballads, and while everything is placed behind a thick pane of cassette noise you can just make out a flicker of transcendence in there. Gorgeous stuff.
