Davy Kehoe
The Pilot

Davy Kehoe’s 2017 release Short Passing Game was a dance release made with the heart of Neu! or Suicide - though judging by the amped-up speed this was a heart undergoing rapid palpitations. The speed on The Pilot is not quite as physically alarming, but the synergy of styles is just as potent, resembling a stretched out band jam as much as any electronic release.

David Toop / Jan Hendrickse / Cath Roberts / CUEE
Boundaries

A split here, containing a fresh and exciting collaboration on each side. On side A, experimental music’s elder statesman David Toop pairs with Jan Hendrikse in order to actualise a text score by Chieko Shiomi, very quietly. On side B, Cath Roberts, the sax leader of Sloth Racket, leads the large City University Experimental Ensemble in a performance of new work of hers. Out on multi.modal.

Splintered
Moraine

Originally released in 1997, this reissue refreshes the Splinter classic. Boasting a vast palette of influences, 'Moraine' takes us through fuzzed out rock dirges, howling and stuttering noise and free jazz splashes thrown over the top. The atmosphere bleeds in here and there, creating an exciting and dynamic journey overall.

Zed
Plastic Love

Matmos may be poised to release their new album Plastic Anniversary, but it seems Italian reissue label Erezioni has a polymeric celebration of its own just here. Think twice about shelling out a three-figure sum on Discogs: this 1983 Italo jewel is back in affordable circulation. Lush, inventive and unmissable for Italo-disco connoisseurs.

Kleenex Girl Wonder
White Lacuna

Given that Kleenex Girl Wonder are gearing up to mark 25 years in the game, you could forgive KGW main man Graham Smith if he wanted to take his foot off the gas a little. However, if anything the band are upping their work-rate these days. White Lacuna is the group’s second LP of 2018, and judging by the energy on display here they might be good for another one before 12 more months are up. This is an LP of typically zany indie jangles - imagine Eels with more pep.

Funky Doodle
Live From Yellowknife

Funky Doodle went to town sat upon a pony, the did a show on New Year's Day and called in macaroni. Live From Yellowknife is the one and only performance of Funk Doodle, a collaboration between DJ Richard, James K and Draveng. Together they brought in the new year the only way they knew how, with brooding and unsettling electronic drones.

Lukid
Drip

London based producer Lukid has been pretty quiet the last few years. Having had EPs and LP out through Ninja Tune, and Actress’s Werk Discs he returns with an EP on Arcola bringing back his melted deconstructed rhythms and warped otherworldly synthetics that would please fans of Rezzett, OPN and the likes.

Maxiboy is a new label set up by Liam Robertson and Calum Macleod, AKA Scottish DJ duo, Clouds. The label exists to provide a platform for the pair to release experimental but club-focussed techno. Running It, a four track 12”, will be the first release. Clouds have previously released music via Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe label.

Trust Obey
Fear & Bullets (The Crow Comic Accompaniment in conjunction with James O' Barr)

Back in 1994 John Bergin (Trust Obey) hooked up James O’Barr. For those who don’t know, O’Barr is author of acclaimed comic book series The Crow, and his collaboration with Bergin spawned a musical companion piece to the book entitled Fear & Bullets. This 25th anniversary edition of Fear & Bullets features tracks from both the 1994 and 1998 versions of the LP as well as some previously-unreleased demos. O’Barr completists will be tempted by the poster that depicts O’Barr’s first-ever drawing of Crow. Musically it’s very of-the-time - Nine Inch Nails were clearly a huge influence on Bergin back then.

Xyn Cabal
Perfect Oracle

Athens via... the world? Perfect Oracle is the debut EP from Xyn Cabal who, informed by the tempestuous politics of Greece, has created tracks that borrow from all sorts of dance musics. It's the grime influence that is most audible, Xyn Cabal taking its sounds and rhythms and turning them into speed freaks. On Death Of Rave.

C87

Cherry Red dive back into the 80’s for this imagined follow-up to that legendary NME C86 compilation: the comp that launched a thousand indie bands. Everything on C87’s three discs was recorded in 1986 or 1987, so the tracklisting is ‘realistic’, not to mention stuffed to the brim with wonder: The Vaselines, Pop Will Eat Itself, Dog Faced Hermans… 3CD box-set on Cherry Red.

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres
Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres

Pete Doherty is still out here doing his thing, with another new band behind him, The Puta Madres. This self-titled pseudo-debut features all your favourite Doherty stylings, with love and loss and darkness all expressed through Pete’s cheeky-chappy doomed-romantic persona. Available via Strap Originals, in a whole bevy of formats.

Sinkane
Dépaysé

Sinkane has taken a more confrontational approach to his latest album, Dépaysé. The album tells of the difficulties immigrants have under the Trump administration. Sinkane describes it as being loud and raw. Judging by lead single Everybody, he’s mixed soul power and North-African rock to create an emotive and powerful sound. LP and CD on City Slang.

Emily A. Sprague
Water Memory / Mount Vision

Two self-released (2017, 2018) albums by LA composer-synthesist and songwriter Emily A. Sprague come together as one in a neat RVNG Intl. re-release. Aptly titled, the pieces on Water Memory comprise gently lapping phrases on piano and synth, while Mount Vision harnesses loops and drones for markedly more bucolic soundscapery.

Benny Sings
City Pop

Benny Sings returns with a sixth album, this time on the prestigious Stones Throw label. The smooth and lovely sound of Benny Sings is all present and correct here, from the calm vocals to the happy pop and soulful funk instrumentation. City Pop will make your apartment feel like a very cool place to be.

Lee Moses
How Much Longer Must I Wait? Singles & Rarities 1965-1972

Lee Moses is an enigmatic Southern Soul kind of guy, noted for his rare but fantastic 1971 album Time and Place. But what if you wanted to go deeper than that album? Well then you’d need How Much Longer Must I Wait?, which compiles (mostly earlier) non-album material that is either vanishingly rare or actually never before released. Very soulful stuff, beautifully restored and presented.

James Brown
Slaughters Big Rip-Off (Original Soundtrack)

The amount of huge artists from the funk/soul continuum who’ve soundtracked blaxploitation movies is just crazy. Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and Marvin Gaye are just three of the all-time greats that produced scores for films of the genre during its early-’70s heyday. Even the Godfather himself Mr. James Brown got in on the act, teaming up with on-off compositional partner Fred Wesley to produce a typically high-wire set of tunes for 1973 flick Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. Out of print for a minute, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off (OST) has now been reissued by Polydor.

Wintersleep
In The Land Of

In The Land Of is the eighth album by highly-rated Canadian indie band, Wintersleep. It was produced by Tony Doogan who has worked with Belle and Sebastian and Mogwai. This, sound-wise, probably lands somewhere between the sound of the two bands as they embrace the quiet/loud dynamic. On Dine Alone.

Exile One
Exile One

In 1970 Gordon Henderson moved to Guadeloupe to pursue a career in music. By 1973 he'd started his own back, Exile One. This reissue on Tidal Wave Music, of their 1974 debut, shows off the band's ability to mix together funk, soul, reggae, calypso and Haitian music. The result is fun as hell and demands that you get up and dance.

Minor Poet
The Good News

Remember the days when seeing the Sub Pop label on a record meant that you were buying some sort of lo-to-mid-fi rock produced by Jack Endino or Steve Fisk? Those days are long gone. Sub Pop’s roster has expanded in all directions so you don’t know what you’ll get. With Minor Poet they have a bedroom artist, Andrew Carter, who makes music that seemingly mixes Phil Spector, The Beach Boys, ‘70s pop and Animal Collective. The Good News is his new EP and follows on from 2017’s And How! LP.

POW!
Shift

POW! release their fourth LP via Castle Face (Thee Oh Sees, Damaged Bug and all those other John Dwyer-type ventures). Shift is, you know, garage rock and that. Guitars are loud, tubs are thumped, vocals are shouted, that sort of thing. Shift's tunes are short and sharp and everyone seems to be going about things with a sense of fun. Job’s a good’un.

Jack Waterson
Adrian Younge presents Jack Waterson

Is there anything Adrian Younge won't present? I'm yet to find something, but do let me know if you have any luck. On Jack Waterson Younge and Waterson marry their expertise in hip hop and psychedelia to make a record that is worthy of a press release that mentions acid. Think Tame Impala with breakbeats. On Linear Labs.

Joe Budden
Rage & The Machine

Re-issue of the eighth and final solo album by former Slaughterhouse rapper Joe Budden, originally released in late 2016. Rage & The Machine may have grabbed headlines at the time for Budden’s feuds with other hip-hop stars such as Drake and Meek Mill, but its focussed and political lyrics make the music within interesting and worthy.

Laneous
Monstera Deliciosa

Australian vocal jazz with an inevitably Giles Peterson co-sign from Brisbane's Laneous. The project belongs to Lachlan Mitchell who has been showing off his soulful falsetto for years. On Monstera Deliciosa he gets together with a number of incredibly talented musicians, including a couple from Hiatus Kaoiyote for an album as smooth as silk. On Soul Has No Tempo.

The Exaltics
II Worlds

II Worlds sees The Exaltics (Robert Witschakowski) back on Clone West Coast Series for the first time in half a decade. Witschakowski marks this occasion with a set of deliciously dark astral electro. These tracks are sort of like the sonic equivalent of when things start to go south in Alien. No cats though.

Young Scientist
Results, Not Answers

Young Scientist are one of the foremost bands from the first wave of Seattle’s alternative set. Back in the ‘70s before grunge was king, synths were the instrument de jour. Young Scientist took their inspiration from German electronic acts such Cluster, Harmonia and Tangerine Dream. Their album of hypnotic soundscapes, Results, Not Answers was originally released on cassette in 1979. Reissue on Bureau B.

Petrol Girls
Cut & Stitch

UK/Austrian half male/half female feminist punk band Petrol Girls follow up 2016’s Talk Of Violence with Cut & Stitch. As the title suggests, this album is a more experimental work, stitching together a variety of ideas and sounds. If you want a visceral blast of punk energy, look no further. On Hassle.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 1

Primal Scream. They’re a band. Sometimes, most of Screamadelica aside they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band. Here we have Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 1, a collection of singles with seventeen tracks that go all the way back to 1986’s Velocity Girl up to 1998’s Kill All Hippies. Double 180g vinyl LP on Columbia.

Tyga
Taste

Tyga - a man, it should be noted, who is not exactly renowned for his good taste - dropped a single called ‘Taste’ back in 2018. A track that featured Offset and saw Tyga rhyme the word ‘claim’ with itself three times in almost as many seconds, it turned out to be his biggest hit since the (in)famous ‘Rack City’ seven years earlier. Now 'Taste' is given the ultimate accolade of a massive hit single - the commemorative picture disc edition. Looks nice eh.

Freddie Gibbs
Shadow Of A Doubt

A much-needed re-issue of the second studio album by American rapper Freddie Gibbs, himself teaming up once again with producer Madlib for a collaboration in 2019. Shadow Of A Doubt was originally released back in 2015, and won much critical praise for Gibbs’s versatility and stylistic diversity. Vinyl edition includes five extra tracks compared to the CD version. 

Studio Mule
BGM

‘But I thought Studio Mule was just a label?’ we hear you cry. You’re right, but now the Japanese imprint has added an in-house band to its arsenal. On BGM label head Toshiya Kawasaki has assembled a crackpot team to help him reinterpret tracks from artists like Yellow Magic Orchestra and Burt Bacharach (though the version of Bacharach’s ‘The April Fools’ here draws more on the Yukihiro Takahashi cover) in a dreamy Balearic/City Pop style. Dip In The Pool’s Miyako Koda provides vocals on two songs.

Frenship
Vacation

LA pop duo Frenship double-down on the success of singles such as 'Capsize' and prepare to take the world by storm with their debut album, Vacation. The pair have been working together for six years, so they have really honed their craft. Vacation includes guest performances from Bastille and Yoke Lore. On Counter Records.

D.K.
Riding For A Fall

Riding For A Fall is the second D.K. release on Antinote in quick succession. This EP picks up where March’s Mystic Warrior left off. ‘Voices’ and ‘Shoubuari (Battle)’ are both high-energy deep house tracks that incorporate Balearic pads and arpeggio-melodies. The effect is of a Music From Memory drop played slightly too fast. Riding For A Fall rounds out with its title track, a slow and dubby delight that now sounds like a Music From Memory drop played slightly too slow.

Tracey
Biostar

Vowelophobe Tracey releases his debut album Biostar on Dial (also of Lawrence, Roman Flugel and Efdemin). On it the Netherlands-based producer explores the aesthetics of acid, without committing to its over bearing heaviness. The result is fascinating, acid bass that seems to float in the air, completely untethered.

Golden Ashes
Gold Are The Ashes Of The Restorer

Gnaw Their Tongues / SEIROM creative engine Mories returns under yet another new guise as Golden Ashes, promising further lengthy explorations in drone rock and post-metal labelled with unwieldy song titles. Gold Are the Ashes of the Restorer is the project’s debut release, presented on CD and transparent yellow vinyl.

Astrid
A Porthole (I)

The first installment of a double album release scheduled for 2019, Astrid’s newest effort A Porthole (I) is conceptually built around the idea of a cabin on a sea voyage. Each of the four tracks is named after a different kind of seaweed, and the French modern-classical quartet drive each musical exploration with typical virtuoso showmanship.

Olivia Neutron-John
Olivia Neutron-John

Olivia Neutron-John - and what a name that is - finally drops a new LP. Coming a full five years after the lo-fi extravaganzas of INJURY TRAIN AND I'M NEVER GETTING OFF IT b/w VULNERABILITY, this eponymous record is another set of voyages in electronic post-punk and minimal synth. There’s a bit of a psychedelic flavour to tracks like ‘March’ too. Olivia Neutron-John is out via Sister Polygon (Priests, Downtown Boys).

All Your Sisters
Trust Ruins

Jordan Morrison has been through it. Over the past few years he’s experienced deaths of both family and friends, got engaged and had his brain fried from working as a paramedic. That’s a lot to process, and he does that through the monolithic industrial post-punk of his All Your Sisters project. Trust Ruins, the third All Your Sisters LP, is a white-knuckle ride through Gothic EBM and synth-punk that’s made all the more overwhelming for Morrison’s pained, caustic vocals. Think The Soft Moon and Nitzer Ebb.

Dark Star
Cryonics: 1989 - 1992

Sold out

Nobody
All Too Familiar

Nobody here turns away from the world of samples and creates an album with live instruments. Delightfully, All Too Familiar’s guitar-bass-drums-and keys set-up still produces some really head-knodding tracks, with the sonic breadth and fizzing play of ideas that you’d expect from Nobody’s past works. Cool stuff on Ubiquity Recordings.

Soft Issues
Soft Issues

Soft Issues, Leeds’ finest new power electronics outfit, release their debut full-length via Opal Tapes (Karen Gwyer, Wanda Group). A duo who also turn out for (among others) Cattle and The Shits, together they make a screeching racket of electronic drums, synths and machine malfunctions. This is all topped off by vocals that range from a snarl to a scream. We hear they love Afrobeat, though there's no evidence of that across these eleven tracks. 50p extra garlic.

Eric Copeland
Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes)

Eric Copeland’s excellent first Trogg Modal LP gets served four ways on this remix set. With its set of lo-fi freak beats, Copeland’s album provides rich pickings for the quartet of Parris, RAMZi, Lokler and Gerry Read to feast upon. As such we get everything from EBM to Balearic house to anti-techno (Lokier, RAMZi and Parris in that order) across Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes).

Dreadnought
Emergence

Colorado metal group Dreadnought serve up their fourth LP (first for Profound Lore). Emergence is another set of ambitious songs from the Denver group. Cuts like ‘Besieged’ are a bit doomy, a bit proggy, a bit black metal-y. An album like Emergence makes sense on a label that has also released records by Wayfarer and Bell Witch.

Yawners
Just Calm Down

Here haveth we the debut LP from Madrid-based Yawners - originally the solo project of one Elena Nieto that has expanded to include Martín Muñoz on drums. Just Calm Down is a 2019 album with a 1999 sensibility. The tracks here straddle the grungey alt-rock sound of groups like Breeders and Weezer with a little of Millencolin’s big-hearted pop-punk. Yawners are one to file next to yer Snail Mails and yer Courtney Barnetts.

Joan As Police Woman
Joanthology

I wish I was called Joan….and a had a recording contract so I could call an album Joanthology. I guess it doesn’t matter because Ms. Joan Wasser, AKA Joan As Police Woman has already done it. This is a career-spanning retrospective picking the best moments from her 15 years in the biz. It includes two brand new tracks - one of which is a cover of Prince’s Kiss - along with classics featuring high quality guest artists: Rufus Wainwright, Antony and David Sylvian.

Patio
Essentials

Nearly three years after mini-album Luxury, the long-awaited debut album from Brooklyn-based punks Patio is finally here. Taking cues from British post-punk acts and modern-day acts such as Bodega and Shopping, the ten tracks and 26 minutes that make up Essentials aim at the nitty-gritty of life in 2019. 

Causa Sui
Summer Sessions Vol. 2

Vinyl re-issue of the Summer Sessions series by Danish instrumental psych- / stoner-rock band Causa Sui, originally released between 2008 and 2009 and with the aid of saxophonist Johan Riedelow. Vol. 2 includes Riedelow’s free jazz freakout on ‘Rip Tide’ and the spaghetti-western flavours of 'Cinecitta'.

Beauty Sleep
Be Kind

Beauty Sleep are a trio from Belfast who play ‘80s influenced synth pop, or dream pop as it tends to be called these days. They love what they do and it shines through in their positive pop. Be Kind is their debut album and follows on from a couple of successful singles, 'Until We See The Sun' and 'All In'. On Quiet Arch.

Silence
Silent Meditation

Father and son duo Eric and Ben Antonow launched this project on Kickstarter, ultimately hitting their funding goal nine times over. Some will scoff, though a record filled only with silence has its uses and meanings. As the title suggests, the release has been arranged mainly with meditation in mind. Plays just as well at 45 as at 33⅓.

Sontag Shogun
It Billows Up

It Billows Up (it really does, you know) is the third LP from Brooklyn experimentalists Sontag Shogun. The trio's style brings together elements of free jazz, post-rock, drone, ambient and contemporary classical composition to create delicate and intricate soundscapes. On It Billows Up they come through with some of their most nuanced and tender compositions yet - it’s a record in the company artists like Dead Light and Snow Palms. Out via Youngbloods (Suplington, Annabel (lee)).

Cygnus
Deep Analysis

Texan electran Cygnus returns to Central Processing Unit for the first time in a while. You know what you’re gonna get when you see these two pair up. Deep Analysis is another set of sea-sick club jams that sound like someone spilling orangeade all over Drexciya’s equipment. A couple of the Deep Analysis jams even come replete with some vocoder-laden vocals.

Ola Fløttum
Thelma

Death Waltz do what they do best and drop another film OST. This one consists of the tense, eerie orchestral pieces Ola Fløttum cooked up for 2017 flick Thelma. While things rarely rise above a medium-volume hum, the quietness of this score allows Fløttum to ratchet up tension in subtle yet potent ways. Anyone who’s a fan of the music from Let The Right One In or 2001: A Space Odyssey should check Thelma.

Smuggler Brothers
Musione

This one's for the fans of the hot new things, 'library music'. Smuggler Brothers are from Sicily, and so are perfectly pitched to draw from Italy's rich history of library music, while incorporating influences from all the cultures who touch the mediterranean. Musione is progressive-funk that's not afraid to give itself over to other musical traditions.

Steve Marino
Fluff

Fluff is the debut solo album by Steve Marino. He is, however, an accomplished singer/songwriter who has been releasing albums under the Moor Hound moniker for the last decade. Reasons for his name change seem to, oddly perhaps, point to the fact he is now collaborating with producer Ben Lumsdaine.  Fans of Cass McCombs, Damien Jurado and Sun Kil Moon will enjoy this. LP and CD on Darling.

The Head and The Heart
Living Mirage

American indie-folksters The Head and The Heart return with their fourth studio album. Recorded in legendary locations connected with the Great American Songbook, including the Joshua Tree National Park and studios in Nashville and L.A., Living Mirage is a series of “vignettes” of ennui and redemption, according to lead singer Jon Russell.

Institute
Readjusting The Locks

Readjusting The Locks by Institute is the first album by the band since half of them upped sticks and moved from Austin to New York. It doesn’t seem to have held them back. They met up in Brooklyn in late 2018 and recorded an album of crisply produced scuzz rock, with the spirit of ‘77 inhabiting their thoughts and therefore the sounds they produced. On Sacred Bones.

Max Richter
Never Look Away (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Already binged your way through both Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86? Then you might wish to try Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s 2018 flick Never Look Away, another masterpiece of contemporary cinema that sees Germany coming to terms with its past. It was was nominated for two Academy Awards you know. Max Richter did the score in his classic nicey-nicey cine-strings style, and his Never Look Away OST is what we have for you here.

Julie Coker
A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981

It’s not often that we get in a record by a former Miss Western Nigeria. It’s also not often that we get in a record by a woman who was her country’s first ever female television presenter. But then again, Julie Coker is not your average artist. A friend of Fela Kuti during her heyday, the Nigerian singer and television personality is now honoured with her first compilation courtesy of Kalita Records. A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981 draws from Coker's Tomorrow and Ere Yon (Sweet Songs) albums. This is a superb collection of boogie and highlife to add to the collection. Bonus points for those of you who spotted that ‘Ere Yon’ was recently re-worked by Anderson .Paak on his Oxnard LP.

Justin Townes Earle
The Saint Of Lost Causes

Being the son of a respected songwriter and being partly named in honour of another must put pressure on you. Justin Townes Earle seems to be coping okay though (these days). The Saint of Lost Causes is his eighth album. Songs of American communities are plenty: ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances. On New West.

Mike Donovan
Exurbian Quonset

Right so here’s the thing - since Tyga released his smash hit ‘Rack City’ back 2011, whenever this particular Norman Records™ poundo’flesh comes across an LP released on Drag City he immediately starts singing the song in his head. This is unfortunate not because he doesn’t care for ‘Rack City’ (au contraire), but more because he now finds it hard to take anything released on the esteemed indie-rock imprint seriously. For instance, how about Mike Donovan’s third solo LP Exurbian Quonset. It’s an album of excellent leftfield garage-fuzz from the former Sic Alps fellow, but no matter how many times this thing gets spun it’s still ‘ten ten ten twenties’ this and ‘fresher than a [redacted] peppermint’ that.

Vic Godard
30 Odd Years

Double CD compilation showcasing, as the title says in more ways than one, 30 Odd Years of the resolutely left-field artist Vic Godard. Re-issued after its original release in 2014, it tracks Godard’s output with the criminally underrated British punk act Subway Sect to his fascinating solo career in the late 80s and beyond.

Edinburgh Leisure
Die Gefahr Im Jazz

You might remember ********, the rudely named duo from Domino’s Weird World sublabel. One of them, Ailie Ormston, has been doing some fab solo electronic music on the side. Here’s what the other one, a T Fraser, has been up to. Edinburgh Leisure is a duo with Keith Farquhar and takes unconventional “idle authorship” approaches to instrumentation (everyday objects), lyricism (RhymeZone) and fair use (hacked Apple device sounds, etc.). This lot are always worth checking out.

Arlo Day
Bad Timing

Then I look at you, and the world's alright with me. Just one look at you, and I know it's gonna be *deep breath* an Arlo Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay (Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day…) Day’s debut (more like DAY-but, eh ladies and gentlemen?) EP contains none of the positive vibes of the old William Withers’ tune. Bad Timing is, in fact, a set of regret-filled bedroom indie in the vein of King Krule and Angel Olsen. Sorry for misleading you. It’s good, though!

Zomby
Vanta

The shadowy electronic artist known as Zomby moves over to Bedouin Records for his latest 12” EP. Consisting of five tracks of comparatively unreconstructed techno that sounds nothing like dubstep - at least in comparison to his previous outings - Vanta looks likely to be another fascinating addition to a discography that’s dipped a toe in basically every sub-genre of British dance music going.

More than anyone else the band bring to mind the multimedia collective japes of Amnesia Scanner, even playing in the same musical ball pit as the Berlin duo. They also have a handle on vocal manipulation that recalls Holly Herndon.
