Boomkat Product Review:
Lucrecia Dalt brilliantly aligns abstract pop sediments with ambiguous sentiment...
One of the leading lights of quiet, boundary-probing song-writing, Lucrecia is at her most mercurial in Ou, joined by Clarinet and Saxophone for one piece among a suite of specially grained small sound composition and glossolalic inference that perhaps best betrays her academic background as a geologist as much as her interests in exploratory New Wave German cinema.
Ou unfolds in multi-sectioned segments with an absorbingly slow, natural complexity that connotes the passing of geologic or film time, as opposed to real time, or maybe that is real time? Either way, she’s conjures something like hot rocks singing the blues before forming into a cumbia-style bob with Over Unity, while Iot uncanily vacillates between bodies, states, or scenes, in a surreal cadence of electronics and voice recalling Maja S.K. Ratkje.
The LP really comes into its own on Floto, where those strange segues between states lead us into ever more unpredictable niches via nourish signposts, right up to the impressively windswept, weathered dynamics of Eleanore, recalling something like Wolfgang Voigt’s Gas shaken in a snow globe.
