Cate Le Bon - Rock Pool LP
Beguiling Welsh musician Cate Le Bon released her new album, Crab Day, earlier this year, and she''s following it up with a 4-song EP in January made up of leftover songs from that writing period. "Rock Pool is the killed darlings from the Crab Day sessions brought back to life on a classic 2-2 formation," she says. "Written under the same banner of the impossibly absurd and emerging to unimaginable bedlam." Produced by Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, and featuring musicians H. Hawkline, Stephen Black and Stella Mozgawa, Rock Pool spins and swirls the waters with carnival pop, synth, drone and dance, all beamed along the pan-electric ray of Cates immutable blank stare. Short-and-sweet-play fun of a highly ambiguous nature.
