Mira Calix makes reasonably difficult music. I'm sure none of you out there would disagree. Here's her brand new CD on Warp Records called 'The Elephant In The Room: 3 Commissions' Which I can only assume means good ole Mira was commissioned by some arty types to make some relevantly arty soundtrack to compliment the work. Not seeing the original work (some sort of crazed opera) it's hard to know how well this goes with it so I'm judging this on it's own. It's quite a difficult listen to be honest and I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. I did see her support Murcof and she did a similar thing to a documentary about travelling on a bus accrross Brazil which I did enjoy. This has some lighter classic moments in it but at times it's a bit too random and difficult for me. Mind you on one listen it's hard to judge so I'll have to try it again later!!
