Boomkat Product Review:
Icelandic theremin musician Hekla's second album, Xiuxiuejar, on Phantom Limb.
"Haunting, spectral soundscape-songwriting, a sonic black hole of corrosive beauty and mesmerising darkness.
A sense of understatement, of quietude, of intentionality permeates Hekla's new album. Tiny, single artefacts are delicately placed about a desolate negative space, creating a textural structure built on and around silence. And while the album is constructed from songs, the sheer, dense gravity of Hekla’s sonics aligns Xiuxiuejar with avant-garde, musique concréte and sound-art, yielding an album to mimic Iceland’s barren rocky landscapes, permanight and folkloric Magick."
