ltd#144: mass ornament "fyxe" c39
it's been a while, but it's finally time for the latest feather in eden hemming's cap to be plucked. "fyxe" follows-up 2008's "bewilderness" on her own teosinte label. but forget what you know because this is the next level and where it goes from here, i can only guess.
"fyxe" is heavy. it's deep. from the opening, bass-heavy electronics and wordless vocal loops of "polygon angel" you know you're in for a treat. the rise of altar eagle has led to more vocal-heavy compositions in hemming's solo wares, but for my money that's no bad thing. discordant, almost-lost guitar structures provide the bass for more soaring. there's a harsher side, too, with found objects fed through a continuous circuit of reverbs and delays to create aural moonscapes devoid of tonality. metallic drones pierce the dust while she suffers through, dropping vocals from a perch above. at any minute everything could fall apart. it's a beautiful thing.
