Valet - Naked Acid (7tx CD, 43:55 – Kranky rec ‘o8) - There's something spiritually lysergic into Naked Acid, - like if You had the feeling You're going beyond and as You will be back, no one noticed Your absence. And that's right the essence of such absence, it is on the air like a ghost, in each of these seven long tracks, it works like a “psychedelic mantra”, now kaleidoscopic and cerebral, then even lyrical, oneiric and ghostly. Through this new release Honey Owens (sometimes member of Jackie-O Motherfucker and Atlas Sound) redefines Her own horizon, getting as standard her previous Blood Is Clean, then she gets firmly a new start towards an experimentation, son of a minor America, able to suggest infinite soundscapes to be filled with melodies resounding like lullabies, speaking of ghosts, to exorcize a reality which often betrays the same dreams they gave us first. The opening disc part is like toned-down and drugged, while the latter better embraces an atavistic tribal-percussive blow. There's room for songs too, clearly ballads: evocative Kehaare, twilight/mild Fire, - yet the final aim looks like finalized to an abstract digression about multilayered and lysergic sounds, slowing down on charming suites with synth drones, and guitars like evanescent and seductive syrens. That's why drowning in this sea is sweet to me.
