Marcia Bassett & Helena Espvall - Lapidary

Altvinyl, 2010

Amorphous & gorgeous bioluminescent twilit forest ascensions from two of the most powerful & skilled women of the movement, Marcia Bassett (aka Zaïmph, ov Hototogisu, GHQ, Double Leopards, etc.) and Helena Espvall (Espers, Fursaxa's band, Ghost collaborations, etc.). Inverted rainbows of emotional charges, nightside of eden but neither blackened nor charred, more sensual, liminal, and romantic. The sort of sprawling tactile-yet-ethereal drone sculpting we've come to expect from Bassett's best solo work. For focused, in-depth listening.
