The Ectoplasm Girls project was born in 2006 and was created by Swedish girls Tanya and Nadine Byrne in order to deal with the death of their mother. Nothing like a bit of creativity as therapy and when you combine that with a fascination with the occult then there is the potential for some deep self exploration and intriguing sonic results. The LP is quite strange with darker witchy moments juxtaposed with more kooky playful feminine elements. One track even recalls the Sesame Street theme tune. There's quite a lot to grasp upon first listen, from dubbed out muffled off kilter electronics, vocal loops, indecipherable half-whispered phrases and even the odd childlike melody emerging from walls of static and decay. There's even some lo-fi techno stomping on 'If Your Mother Asks'. 'You And Me' gets some dramatic and sinister vibes going before the cracked electronics and semi-tortured/ghostly vocals of 'Mama Put me In A Pie'. Then we get some rugged and primitive drum machine rhythms all smothered in an emerging shroud of evil. Quite unlike anything I've heard recently and really had my attention throughout.
