Iris I Speah LP
Tax Free Records
What a stunning record (love the sleeve as well). I really can't describe it any better then the official bio. Says it all. Exactly how i like my vinyl. Surprising, balancing between experiment, electronics, pop. In a weird way somewhere between El-G, The Books, Supreme Dicks and Morgan Fisher. Highly recommended, just as her 7".
More psychedelic folk compositions dedicated to a guitar from the Czech Republic, this time in LP format.
All Night Flight: "Right off that back of that beautifully unassuming 7” earlier this year on Tax Free Records - the mysterious Iris turns in a whole LP of elegantly dubbed-out and drifting folk miniatures for the label. There’s an addictive air of mystery here - soft drum machines bubble up around chiming guitar and smeared electronics. The spirits of both Woo and Deux Filles are present, as well as the whole Bons / Happy Return / Jam money / Spillage Fete thing and that recent Blackwater record. But, also, there’s the always coming back to yourself quality of Black Dice’s Beaches and Canyons and the un-mappable, senseless feeling of Steven Stapleton’s sound design. It’s DIY homemade psychedelia that’s refreshingly free of the standard tropes and has something warm, watery and surreal about it - like tripping on a wet lawn at night, or trying to see forever in the bottom of a suburban pond.."
