Mike and I absolutely love Ela Orleans, she is a total outsider genius and these strange delightful things she continually makes keep creeping into this office like mischievous musical spiders looking for an eager ear-fly to trap. This tape is as great as anything else she’s turned her magic fingers to! From the opening number you’re in a strange time-warp of a dream, this track being along the lines of demented ‘n’ exotic ‘60s European fuzz-pop with ace samples of French M/F dialogue followed by another piece with curiously funky yet implicit DIY breaks and this swooping tremolo guitar sound that recalls the odd out-of-time experimental pop made in the mid-late ‘90s by weirdos like Dymaxion.Her lo-fi approach to innovative pop collage is brilliant, check her fascinating melodic tendencies, organ-led ditties, crackly “lost soundtrack” style pieces, happy accidents with feedback or discordance and even a superb song in the style of Lynchian doo-wop, all totally out-of-space-and-time! As with everything she does, there’s a spectral dusting of something incredibly precious and idiosyncratic which makes her music vastly appealing and cherishable. If you’ve not got the vinyl of ‘Lost’ (which was our introduction to her bizarre world) I'd get in there quick too as the succeeding album is now out of print...
