So it's surprising to find that her fifth solo venture is so mellow.
Past efforts mixed folk thrash and folk hush, yet .
As it stops abruptly and the jangle of 'Future Hold' develops into a down-stroke thrash, the crescendo becomes a glorious, raging barrage of tense chords and dumb hooks; by the end it's developed into distorted mantra of flutes and noise.
cleverly punctuates simple songs with intentionally destructive arrangements; the songs battle with themselves, leaving Lubelski either as a passive reciter of monotone melodies or, more sumptuously, singing with beauty when given the space.
Like Thurston Moore before her (whose recent album she played violin on) Lubelski has taken the experimentation of her previous work and used it as foundations for something far more accessible, while never losing sight of the fact that she's writing music that's deeper than your average pop record.
Just check the album's most propulsive track, the immense 'Tasting the Candy', a double-time psych-pop stomper and a track that perfectly marries her keen production knowledge (Lubelski engineers at the renowned Rare Book Room studio) and catchy songwriting.
She has recorded with Thurston Moore for his ‘Trees Outside The Academy’ reocrding ans well as his forthcoming 2011 release ‘Benediction’.
Thurston Moore is a founding member of NYC weird rock groop Sonic Youth.
There's a gentle dub bass pulse and her psychedelic voice coos reflectively; her lines are short, each pause bringing expectation for the next.
