ISOLATION AND REJECTION will include 5 volumes of rejected sounds, collated by Front & Follow and The Geography Trip. And it’s for a good cause: buy this fantastically eclectic compilation and contribute to the good work The Brick in Wigan does supporting people who are homeless and/or struggling with poverty/debt relief. Pre-order and get my track “Waking Up With A Cat On My Face” and others now. Vol 1 is out 26th June, and can be pre-ordered NOW:
I’m flattered to have been interviewed by Daniel Agami for Vanity Fair Italia about my contribution to the Cities and Memory Covid-19 “stay at home sounds” project. Take a world tour through the sounds of seven women without leaving the comfort of your own home.
“Things move on into a strange seductive time traveling zone, one in which an old school train rattles over the tracks and the landscape is presumably all made out of electronic memorability. You can hear the birthplace of drone, the early BBC synth basement experimentational vibes, the electric joyfulness of truly re innovating music as it had always existed before.”
One more day til the release of Retrophonica – Aetheric Transmissions, and the reviews are rolling in. Electronic Sound Magazine (paywall) said of my contribution, “…the approach is deeply referential, evoking rich experimentation through tones, loops, and processed voices that feel like they could easily unravel messily.” And ANTI: Music Review writes, “Metro Musix by Elizabeth Joan Kelly is one of my favorites off the compilation, refining many of the elements typically pursued but adding her typical cataclysmic touch that becomes all the more riveting, and forbidden-sounding.” Read the full ANTI review here, and don’t forget to buy your copy of Retrophonica; proceeds benefit Delia Derbyshire Day!
