andy stott - luxury problems
3rd release from Manchester, England artist is an invitation to hypnotic immersion in an alternate soundscape world. Recorded in Heaven, where something is ever-so-slightly off, "Luxury Problems" is the sound of angels working their way through rumbling demonic temptations, via repetition and reinforcement of the celestial dance atmosphere. The light & airy, but eerily haunting, voice of Alison Skidmore glides on an elevated plane while lower realm grunts and
burbles abound, sometimes steered by earthy trip-hop rhythms, sometimes suspended over an endless, inviting cavern of darkness. Angelic sensuality and below-the-earth, beat-driven tribal menace are all wrapped in a provocatively gauzy, atmospheric sheen of David Lynch-ian beauty and terror. It's an inherently spiritual electronic domain, where the nature of the spirits isn't always apparent, but the beauty & power of their grasp is unavoidable. Reminiscent of Fever Ray, Matthew Dear, Vladislav Delay, Gazelle Twin, Sigur Ros, American Horror Story soundtrack.
