Boomkat Product Review:
More magic from Monika. Masha Qrella is a key member of long standing Monika act Contriva but here she stands out as a future star in her own right on her solo debut 'Luck'. A wonderful fix of homely/rustic electronics fused to acoustic guitar riffs, analogue keyboard glides, bubbly lo-fi drum machines all in perfect company with Masha's swoonsome vocals. Lyrically very affecting with the moods covering the spectrum of emotion with titles running from 'I Want You To Know' to 'I Don't Like Her' and on to 'With Me'. Also check the killer Robert Wyatt tribute 'To Mr' Wyatt' that Sir John Peel used in one of his classic double up's just recently. The downright loveliness of the songs hit you right between the eyes track after track. Imagine a moody Komeit with production from Barbara Morgenstern and you are close to the sound of 'Luck'. Ten tracks, every cut a winner. Very highly recommended.
