Boomkat Product Review:
Jasmina Guffond has previously made a name for herself as one half of the electronic drone duo Minit, one of the most under-acknowledged acts on Staubgold's roster. For this outing, Guffond assumes a nom de plume and goes it alone, crafting far more conventional songs than her role in Minit would ever permit. The Demolition Series brings together simple, subdued guitar chord progressions with a loose-fitting band setup that's been ever so slightly tampered with via a few minor electronic treatments here and there, helping to imbue compositions like 'Sweet City Sue' with a kind of folksy take on the dream-pop genre. The album concludes with a reminder of the kind of subtle electroacoustic treatments Guffond has explored elsewhere in her career, contributing a Minit variation on one of her songs. it goes easy on the drones but beautifully draws out the atmospheric, drifting quality of her music.
