Intriguing new one from Sacred Bones act SPELLING. The album tackles the dual realities of technological progress - the utopian and the apocalyptic - while backed by music that can flit from garbled R&B to scuzzy synth jams. ‘Mazy Fly’s’ 12-tracks reflect SPELLING’s seemingly contradictory impulses and finds a unique synthesis being formed from these seemingly combative forces.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 February 2019

"Rocck I can't even spell the word" said someone once I can't remember who. But Spelling can't even spelll Spellling so what hope do we have? Her debut LP is quite an odd home constructed thing with hand constructed demonstration electronics sitting beneath her quivering twisty voice. 'Haunted Water' is the album's best thing. A slowly unfurling slab of vintage electronics with develops into an end coda which is truly mesmerising. Imagine ESG, AR Kane and Burial collaborating and it would be something like this. Though this is the album's high water mark there are other good bits  -it's quite incredible how her voice sometimes recalls that of Billy McKenzie of the Associates. It swoops in the same way over the dark material particularly on 'Real Fun'  - an eerie treat that sounds not unlike something on McKenzies 'Beyond the Sun' compilation. 'Melted Wings' even ventures deep into neo classical territory coming on something more akin to A Winged Victory than any Solange track. 

This anything goes lo-fi feels like a prelude to something else. You can bet your bottom dollar that her next LP will be as shiny as a new pin so we might as well enjoy this splurge of bedroom creativity while it lasts.
