There’s a very nice review of the forthcoming Strange Selectors compilation on I Heart Noise. David Soulscorch had this to say about my contribution:
The compilation opens wistfully with “The Heart Sounds Like Heavy Artillery” by the New Orleans based electronic composer Elizabeth Joan Kelly. A suitably gentle opening track built around an ambient soundscape with an almost industrial sounding rhythm.
Strange Selectors is available for pre-order now as a digital download and/or (gorgeous) CD, and releases on September 28. Proceeds go to Médecins Sans Frontières. Still need convincing? Read the rest of David’s review over on the I Heart Noise blog.

Beautifully written and insightful review of Farewell, Doomed Planet! up on I Heart Noise thanks to F.J. Dominguez Pennock:
“…an ethereal collection of songs framed around a familiar compositional ethos, but this time around, with an additional no holds barred urgency regarding the environmental state of our planet. And while most releases centered around dystopian futures usually only prophesize about possible catastrophic possibilities, Kelly’s music and imagery on ‘Farewell, Doom Planet!’ stand out because it places the listener directly in an environmentally tortured future that’s already here.”

Yeah I Know It Sucks has outdone themselves again by reviewing the entire I Heart Noise Spring Compilation, with these kind words to say about my contribution “Voyeur:”
“Always impressive wherever the work of this artist pops up, Voyeur doesn’t go under the reader unnoticed as well. A full on deranged feeling of music that is dense and all over the colorful audio spectrum. Beautifully designed, moving, innovating and scarily surreal like a short story of uncomfortable creepiness in which Elizabeth goes into the mind of a voyeur and channels the findings through excellent music.”
