- Grúska Babúska by Gruska Babuska
This is a beautiful little package! Instead of releasing their album on one of those plastic discs that are so popular, Gruska Babuska have this new one on Static Caravan enclosed within a little rubber Russian doll. When it’s sitting on your shelf nobody will even guess it’s an album! The Icelandic all-girl foursome have six songs here, all in lossless .wavs, mixing gentle pastoral pop with bloopy synthesizers, smooth hypnotic loop-pop and everyone singing lots of the time.
There’s a kind of tumbledown but thoroughly accessible aesthetic which brings to mind The Notwist in places and the group female vocals which dominate throughout keep reminding me of the surprising and excellent feminist prog-choristers Gaggle, but with the hard and twisted edges softened with some Múm-esque twinkliness. It’s confident, well-produced stuff with lots of vocal harmonies, catchy melodies and lustrous polyrhythms. I’m impressed.
