Quarantine (CDr, Album, Promo). I could understand if this was Laurel Halo's first release and there was no history of her music to look to as reference. Any who, I would listen to snippets to see if this is something you would be interested in. As in my case, the debates among friends have been good. The album seems to be a "Love it or Hate it" type affair. Great job Hyperdub on releasing this. It has been on repeat ever since I received it.
Laurel Halo, one of the more fascinating electronic music producers to emerge in the 2010s, follows two EPs for Hippos in Tanks with an album for Hyperdub. Lest there be any doubt as to whether there is a fit, the album's title is Quarantine and its first track is titled "Airsick" - no one would be surprised if labelhead Kode9 issued productions of his own with those exact titles. This sprawling but of-a-piece release, ideal at 40 minutes in length, is significantly less beat-driven than King Felix and Hour Logic.
Laurel Halo - Quarantine From the more dance-oriented pop of her Spring EP as King Felix, to the darker, dizzier Hour Logic release on Hippos In Tanks, Laurel Halo has staked her claim as one of the more intriguing figures in ambient-leaning art-pop. Alongside fellow synth-obsessives Motion Sickness of Time Travel and especially Julia Holter, Halo's part of a breed of classically trained talents taking the blurry heat-haze of Hypnagogic pop into the more elegant, ethereal domains of former stalwarts like Kate Bush and Laurie Anderson. It's also a high watermark on an LP that continues to grow on me two months in, and one of the album's most compelling arguments to, please, get the fuck over your problems with her voice. There's so much else to revel in on Quarantine. Published, Thu, 21 Jun 2012.
Laurel Halo - 'Quarantine'. A move away from dance sounds and towards post-club ambiance. In part, Brooklyn electronicist Laurel Halo’s first album departs from the textures of her previous EPs. ‘Quarantine’ is less concerned with the tropes of olde world dance music, more fixated on gloopy post-club ambience. It’s an even bigger curveball for Hyperdub, though, and one likely to befuddle some of their most loyal customers. The washes of synth and arsequake bass?
The album, Quarantine, is set for release on 28th May. Having heard it, we're confident in saying it's one of the most unique and interesting albums of the year so far - closer in sound to Halo's vocal-driven first EP King Felix than her more recent releases, it's an album composed of songs, but songs with an astonishing amount of physical presence and textural detail. Quarantine's tracklist runs as follows: 'Airsick' 'Years' 'Thaw' 'Joy' 'MK Ultra' 'Wow' 'Carcass' 'Holoday' 'Tumor' 'Morcom' 'Nerve' 'Light + Space'.
