Boomkat Product Review:
Probing slab of skewed ambient and electronic productions injected into pop shapes in the most beguilling fashion; big recommendation if you're into Bjork or Jenny Hval.
Camila De Laborde, now in union with Daniel Hermann-Collini make good use of clunky, sawn-off breakbeats to the vocal mixing and ethereal vibes which perfuses the record, there’s something very mid ‘90s-into-2017 day about Camila Fuchs’ sound on this outing.
It’s coolly stamped with the hallmarks of modernity at its more abstract angles but, on first impressions you’d be forgiven for thinking that LP opener Striking Doubt was a stray Björk production, and likewise that Lotic and Arca were trying out some dank trip hop on the instrumental Drenching, whereas the warbling patina of music box melody and vocals in Waking Morning recalls the golden early phase of Jonna Newsom.
Similarly, we can shower more comparisons on the others, as Welcome My Demon arches up like a darker adjunct of Animal Collective’s psych-pop before lurching into bombed-out trip hop and Diamada wail, and we’re left suspended between the ceiling and the ‘floor in the pensile percussion and vertiginous vox of Manyfold.
Despite the comparisons, Singing From A Fixed Rung is full of original, imaginative song-writing. Certainly wroth your attention, post haste.
