This review is from: Strange Mercy [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This album is Annie Clark's most minimalist album. She ditched the rich and thick sound you can find on 'Actor' and 'Marry Me' for a simple more empty sound... but it works! The album is incredibly consistent thematically and in sound, the album is overflowing with incredible guitar riffs and electronic sounds, noise, grime and rhythm. It's short and sweet and doesn't feel like it overstays its welcome. Expect more sinister lyrics and dark undertones topped with synths and heavy, loud drum beats. By far her most aggressive album.
Funky and stylish but also sinister. The Vinyl version quite cleverly comes with a download code for a digital version so you can keep this masterpiece on your MP3 player ect. And also the vinyl disk for this album is white which looks rather lovely.
