“Sounding like the infinitely looped announcements you might expect to hear in a post-apocalyptic urban wasteland where no one survived, something about what Elizabeth has done here seems to tap directly into the sensation of paranoid dread and existential panic that have become the cornerstones of our daily locked-down lives.”
Next, Pietro Da Sacco from
tackles the Igloo Magazine , referring to the “alluring, dreamlike downtempo strands” of my contribution, “ Strange Selectors compilation The Heart Sounds Like Heavy Artillery.”
Thanks to both Mat and Pietro!
