Word on the street is that Suzanne Kraft is actually an alias for one Diego Herrera, the intent behind his choice of project name currently being unclear. Talk From Home is a low-key, lo-fi sonic meander through melodic synth ambience, soft drum pads and subtle guitar, cooking up a comfortable brew. On Melody As Truth.

As there are supposedly no women making good electronic music it has been up to men to take on female personas of late in order to equal things up a bit. The current vogue for female pseudonyms in this genre is getting a bit ridiculous and is pretty offensive to be honest. Here is another one. Suzanne Kraft is actually Diego Herrera who I apologise profusely to if he's not actually a man.
This is actually a lovely record. An understated seven tracker of gorgeous electronic instrumentals that have an easy listening, almost yacht rock flavour. Many of them bring to mind Eno's ambient compositions of the late '70's and are either beat less or contain simple drum machine tapping away. In fact the whole thing sounds like it was made on a casio keyboard but there are some lovely floaty pieces such as 'Flatiron' that come close to sounding like Durutti Column or Woo's somnambulant instrumental compositions.
Later in the EP electronics are abandoned altogether for minimal guitar on the sleepy 'Male Intuition' and the soften organ tones of closer 'The Result' finish a lovely record off in soothing style.
