The title track is an instant attention grabber as it begins with indie-folk vibes that quickly take an electronic with soaring pads and tight percussion that blend in perfectly. The next track “World Map” takes us in an even stranger direction as warm electric bass lines mix it up with more airy percussion and springy synth lines.
Great day for You Won’t Remember This reviews. First up, Vital Weekly writes, “‘You Won’t Remember This’ is a breezy Avant-folk tune with a slightly hoarse voice, starting mellow with acoustic guitars but fully opening up when the drum machines and electronics kick in… ‘World Map’, on the other side, is a bit more abstract in terms of ‘pop’ or ‘folk’, with a significant role for the drum machine, and all the other sounds around appear in a dub form, coming and going. But the melodic aspect of this song isn’t forgotten and gives this song a great flavour as well.”
Then the Cassingle series gets a shoutout in this month’s Spool’s Out column in The Quietus (!!!!). “From a tentative acoustic opening, the duo of Elizabeth Joan Kelly and David Rodriguez ascend to a glorious Tropicália meets shoegaze epic. It’s ridiculous in its ambition, cramming an album’s worth of ideas into two minutes and thirty seconds.”
Many thanks to 3D World Magazine for their multipage feature on Paal V and Geiger von Müller’s collaborative work, including a nice shout out for my three remixes of Geiger’s and Paal’s Blue Moon Frequency #2b. Geiger has a photo of the feature up on his website.
It’s with the utmost pride and joy that I share that Orca, Attack!’s C.M.S.O. is reviewed in this month’s edition of the incredible The Wire magazine. Spenser Tomson writes, “…incoherent snippets of detail are delivered via garbled new age electronics and blissed out chorals, like a sleep learning tape that’s been chewed by the deck.” The full review is available from Exact Editions or your local library. THANK YOU to Spenser and The Wire editorial staff for their support!
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.
In case you missed it, thanks Ryne E. Hancock for having me on The WTUL Saturday Wakeup to talk about the Hard Rock collapse, Chernobyl Wolves, climate change, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, women in the music industry, and of course Farewell, Doomed Planet! The show is now archived now here.
