Boomkat Product Review:
The strangest and strongest album we've heard yet from avant-garde traveller, Felicia Atkinson. Arriving from Oregon, USA, via the French Alps base of Shelter Press - the publishing platform she runs with Bartolomé Sanson - it unfolds a highly visual sonic topography built upon collaged and randomly selected texts taken from her 2014 publication, 'Improvising Sculpture as Delayed Fictions', plus 'Rechereche de la Base et du Sommet' (René Char, 1955), and 'Madame Edwarda' (Georges Bataille, 1937). We're informed that the production is DIY, recorded with super basic software on a laptop, yet we wouldn't describe it as lo-fi in the usual, gritty sense; it's more a surreal and poetic arrangement of jarring elements - pulsing ambient techno noise and drowsy vocals in 'Against Archives'; crisply roiling doom scapes at whsipered erotic texts in 'LOeil'; tactile bass tones and Lynchian chamber space in 'Carve The Concept And The Artichoke'. Colour us enchanted.
