Boomkat Product Review:
Cult drummer Valentina Magaletti teams up with poet and novelist Fanny Chiarello on "Permanent Draft", an audio-visual manifesto for their ambitious new label.
Permanent Draft is set to be an all-women label that "aims to highlight works showing certain taste for fragmentary, irrepressible creation eruption and lo-fi experiments." This shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who regularly tunes in to Valentina Magaletti prolific output; in the last few months the virtuoso drummer has put out more material than most of yr faves have in a decade.
On these two short tracks, Magaletti adds percussion and sonic abstraction to submerged texts from French writer Fanny Chiarello, who also contributes a series of poems to the physical release. If you managed to peep Magaletti's brilliant "A Queer Anthology of Drums", that's the best indicator of the style on show on 'Migraine', while flipside cut 'The Bitter Truth' is more restrained and ethereal, splicing Chiarello's French words with piano and shimmering textures. It's nail-bitingly short, but keeps us on our toes for what might come next from Permanent Draft.
