As anyone who reads MM will know we are big fans of Emily Reo and have been eagerly awaiting the release of her EP Witch Mountain. The five track cassette is (of course) as dreamily seductive and captivating as we were hoping. There are fuzzy, distorted vocals, loops and washed out synths but always carried along by a lovely melody and the overall result is wonderful.
Best of all, it also has a subversive side that provides more than just a hint of the unexpected and the intriguing feeling that maybe she is slyly laughing behind her hand at a joke no-one else gets – least of all you.
