Boomkat Product Review:
In addition to her solo AGF project on Orthlorng Musork, Antye Greie Fuchs has received critical acclaim as the driving force of Laub, and her work with Craig Armstrong and hubby Vladislav Delay, aka Luomo, on labels such as Kitty Yo, Mille Plateaux, Disco Bruit, and Crosstalk. Re-ordering the leftovers of e-poetry, AGF makes a break from both her native German toungue and abstract vocal content to explore new relationships between language and song. Drawing on a wide variety of inspirations, including fashion design, painting, cinematography and electronic correspondence, ‘Westernization Completed’ is an expression of things happened. Layered exchanges between friends, memories, conflict. Expanding upon the intimacy characteristic of her first solo release, 2002’s ‘Head Slash Bauch’, AGF exploits the editing process to weave together an intricate and compelling narrative about her life and relationship with the world around her. Recommended.
