Ana da Silva & Phew
Tantalising collaboration between Phew, a Japanese electronic musician, and Ana da Silva, a founder member of The Raincoats. Island is a long-distance file-sharing collaboration with much to say and feel about distance and difference. Abstracted tone-drones and quasi-rhythmic clicks merge with treated spoken-word in both Japanese and Portuguese, with intensive and intriguing results. Released by Shouting Out Loud!
