Little Scream: The Golden Record
LITTLE SCREAM's music is--like her moniker suggests --full of contradictions. It is at once both familiar and foreign; weaving multiple genres into a sparkly and Jovian landscape. Nowhere is the Martian and sublunary contrast more present than in two of The Golden Record s standouts, "Cannons" and "The Heron and the Fox". While Cannons conjures visions of receiving signals and painting portals through space over celestial echoes and otherworldly buzzes, The Heron and the Fox recalls a more terrestrial sound while recounting an intense yearning and lamentation of her salad days through a quiet, painful present.
