ROSY PARLANE

Getxo

(Sigma Editions) Used CD $4.00

In which Rosy Parlane reveals an “interest in sublimity, minor keys and mesmerizing repetition … like melancholy carnival music devoid of sentimentality. The repetition … mimics mechanical reproduction in that the quality degenerates over the course of the track, ending in an enveloping, ever stronger fuzz…. Parlane has shifted from relatively lo-fi techniques of construction to the digital realm of computer music and [it] is reflected in the intricacy of the tracks…, innately musical, seductive and affecting, full of quiet and not so quiet catches and hooks, so easy that the difficulty is camouflaged.”
