Boomkat Product Review:
Guest musicians Jarboe and Alexander Tucker are in tow for this latest emission from Guapo's dark sonic laboratory. Fusing a deathly post-folk style of composition with wild, exploratory sounds. Stylistically, a single piece of music can turn several corners within just a few moments: from its beginnings 'Arthur, Elsie & Frances' draws on jerky, metallic figures played on guitar on organ, only to take a more sedate, experimental turn in its final stretch, embracing electronic and ambient sounds, whilst 'Jewelled Turtle' moves from soundtrack-like string section figures to jazzy discord with a slippery ease and unsettling tone. The Eastern, modal patterns hinted at here are further expounded upon by 'The Planks', sounds like a doomy reinterpretation of the raga format, fitting in nicely with the exotic fusions found elsewhere. The longest and final track 'King Lindorm' takes the album further into psychedelic jazz and prog territory, dividing the song into discreet sections, subject to unpredictable structural changes. Elixirs is an album for those of you who were bewitched by Rune Grammofn acts Ultralyd and The Shining, putting a new spin on the experimentalism of '70s rock, whist casting contemporary experimental traits into the mix too.
