Devour, Rise, and Take Flight
Resolution (in jewelcase) OUT OF PRINT - LAST COPIES!
Bangladeshi-born powerhouse Shikhee returns from an intense year and an half in the studio with this first taste of February 2006’s Devour, Rise, and Take Flight, an aggressive counterpoint to 2003’s The Dividing. Shaking loose the confines of the industrial genre, Shikhee has created an harsh and unforgiving electronic assault led by her commanding voice. The four tracks on the Dragonfly single include exclusive remixes and an all new non-album track displaying Android Lust’s most challenging yet accessible songwriting to date.
The single includes exclusive remixes of songs from the upcoming album, plus the new non-album piece “Mother." The disc starts off with the 'edit' version of the title track, which is a quite exciting interaction between sweet’n’trippy darkness and noisy’n’crashy sounds, kinda industrial meets electronica, or beauty meets aggressiveness. Imagine a mix of NIN, Björk, Massive Attack, and I, Parasite and you'll get at least a bit closer to what's coming through the speakers. Shikhee's expressive vox accompany the music really impressively, being emotional, but also demanding. Speaking of I, Parasite aka NY based musician Christopher Jon - his crunchy 'low' version of the track follows before “Hole Solution” (alternate) comes along with a very smooth attitude, including elegantly throbbing rhythms, spacy and trancy effecting sound splinters, sexy vocals and with a bit of a Underworld fragrance. “Mother” concludes this trip and offers a quite atmospheric, cinematic landscape, with Shikhees vocals floating in a whispered, mysterious way. This single really arouses curiosity with regard to the full-length adventure! -Breda
