RELEASES

SCR033: MOTTE – STRANGE DREAMS

“I’m smitten by this record… The six tracks here make sly references to traditional violin phrasing from folk music and gypsy jazz… It’s a burnished, hovering, ever-mutating sound, beautiful and anxious by turns. Some songs seem to set off litte sonic flares in the darkness. Others are stippled with glitches, overdrive distortion and earth hum. The fact Clarke also rolls her glorious thick contralto voice over some pieces is almost a bonus.”
(– Grant Smithies, Sunday Star Times)
