Departure 2019 in Cassette Gods

Beautiful review of the Departure 2019 tape on Cassette Gods this weekend:

“Kelly brings her considerable chops as a singer, a songwriter, and a mischievous experimental imp to the table, delighting everybody in earshot with magnificent synthesizers and baroque arrangements, recalling Vangelis and Tangerine Dream and Enya and Björk, but also the sweeping buzz and interjected interruption of our greatest generation of outsider talent.”

More What Penumbras/ShopLand World reviews

Our supermarkets may be small, but our musical ambition knows no bounds! The Strategic Tape Reserve compilation ShopLand World: Music for a Discovery Park of Miniature Supermarkets  has continued receiving favorable press, including some alarmingly non-sarcastic banter on the Tabs Out Cassette Podcast. “What Penumbras,” my contribution, also received some praise in Pat Padua’s Spectrum Culture 3.2 star review of the album:

“This isn’t a trip to the dazzling cornucopia of the modern grocery store, but a descent into a commercial hellscape, with a quick succession of shimmering blips suggesting a nightmarish aural vision of the checkout aisle.”

Padua also calls the album a “a dense and frequently unsettling anthology.” Read the full review on the site!

Voyeur on YIKIS

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.”

Unusual Capsule on YIKIS

Perpetually supportive Yeah I Know It Sucks has reviewed the ENTIRE Prosthion Recording This Machine Confuses Fascists: An ACLU Benefit Compilation, with some blushingly laudatory words for my contribution, “Unusual Capsule:”

“freaking hell, she hitting brilliance again over here, with a full on stereo mindf*ck, wicked beat weirdness, a work of amazeballs quality that feels like it is on a next level while still having that trademark of humanity to it; don’t want to be an ass licking licker but this is absolutely brilliant.”

Thank you as always to YIKIS for their unending support and kindness, and don’t forget to check out the full album: 36 tracks, $5, all for a good cause.
