Mermaids Boomkat
Published 20 September 2013 by JT

Hallo ,
My Album mermaids has made boomkat. So , the review and link to Sale are below.
Edition of 250 copies with insert. 'Mermaids' contains four pieces composed and recorded by Prix Ars Electronica Award winner, Jo Thomas in 2013. Her first physical release since 'Nature Of Habit' - a piece inspired by the London riots of 2011 - operates around concepts of freedom and unity, signified by the use of glitches and sonic metaphors of water and transformation. The first piece, 'Mermaid' feels like a simulated recording of a dank cave; droplets ping off cold hard surfaces and create strange echoes shaped by uneven surfaces. 'Bream Choir' is more kinetic; phasing, diffused tones glance around the soundsphere, cut at unpredictable angles in gasps and bursts of abstract verse against a constant low-end presence. 'Scales' sounds like a field recording of a crater, replete with morphing jangling bells which become strafing streaks of resonance to unnerving effect. 'Earth, Moon and the Stars' is a gaseous, psychedelic closer slowly swilled with sheer, prickly glitches and spumes of glistening digital crackle roiling in murky motion.

Very pleased ,
Thank you boomkat ,
