Boomkat Product Review:
Dani Baquet-Long’s crucial works continue to appear after her tragic death, and her own Chubby Wolf project is proving to be even more alluring then her considerable work as part of Celer. ‘The Darker Sex’ is the latest archival exploration - and the title explains more than you might guess about the music itself. This is far from simple, easy-going ambient drone - Dani approaches things from a more unexpected, disturbing angle, and the noisy, tape-dubbed shuffle we’d usually expect from her serves only as the backdrop for something far more woozy. Harmonies emerge from the distant drones, and eventually give way to disarmingly beautiful sounds. Fans of Celer, or even the darker ambient material more readily associated with Erik Skodvin’s Miasmah label should dip into this without delay. Proper.
