- Lost by Ela Orleans
9/10 Brian Staff review, 05 August 2010
I've had some really good records this week. Probably the most thrilling one by far is this wonderful album by the enigmatic & androgynous Ela Orleans. We had a copy of 'Lost' sat there by the stereo for weeks and only managed to squeeze time to listen to it in last week when our workload had slowed down a bit for Summer. I don't actually know how to describe this amazing LP. It's like an acid fried psychedelic folk/rock/sound collage thing with this magical experimental pop cloak draped all over it. The songs throughout are just so rich, steeped in warmth & mystery. The production is deep yet amorphous & spectral. There's this one eerie pulsing track that begins side 2 which is especially spellbinding - these multi-tracked cascading strings spilling all over the shop whilst all manner of cosmic noise occurs beneath. Ela, if you're reading, I totally love your record, you are astonishingly gifted and I just know this is gonna give the lucky ones who hear it hours & hours of pleasure. For fans of Animal Collective, Broadcast, Brian Wilson, Grouper, Radiophonic Workshop, old & modern psychedelia and (most importantly) haunting, beautiful soundtracks - she has produced incidental music for The Matrix, Vertigo & Zodiac. My AOTW hands down.
