wc_helmets Elizabeth Joan Kelly has really created something special here. A short journey through Wendy Carlos inspired analogue film music, fractured techno, and uplifting arpeggios, all held together by a voice both lovely and haunting. Moods shift between track but as a whole creates a wonderful listening experience. Favorite track: Departure (Live).

"There are a lot of sounds in here all at once- some slip beats and some static which makes it even begin to sound like a swarm of bees- and yet when you hear them all combined, in their formation together, it sounds like magic, like music..." – raised by cassettes

"...the music rattles around like a kind engine of unspecific electronic origin, one that caters Elizabeth Joan Kelly’s voice like a space fairy that had been made for the glorious mission. She sings beautifully warm and kind, as if her vocals are channeled from another world in which everything is better, healthier and sane. The synth melody seems to acknowledge this all by underlining the whole ordeal like a seal of approval." – Yeah I Know It Sucks

Track Name: Departure (Live)
This world, new world
Won't be my home
Here the windstorms inferno filled
The sirocco whorl endlessly
The atmosphere tenebrous
Astral flares radiant empyrean
How can I know if it is our love, or creation that's ending?
