(5tx k7/digital, self-released, 2014)

Lakshmi Ramgopal, aka Lykanthea, this debut release of her is dated 2014, yet, I found it only a few days ago, and I am stunned - where was I in July 2014? 
This release has nothing to see with the bright Summer vibe of July, if you allow me that, - it's warm as ice, - still, her ethereal, multi-layered vocals are the honey drip over a dream state filled with mesmeric soundscapes, fed with synthesizers, loop station, electric guitar, and drum machine beats.
Indian roots, American native, now home-based here in Rome, her tunes are like far away melodies (Telos), echoed from a middle earth, heard through the wind blowing. A realm of mysticism and sound. Even able to play the pop-side key of her unorthodox writing (title track Migration). 
Her sold-out deluxe tape cassette (!) was "wrapped by Hunter Gatherer with one of her handmade Dhiri Rings. These rings come in Ash". That's attitude. 
So, think of a young Zola Jesus with a deeper, more expressive sense of holy (My Sisters), then, Dark Muse, or, more locally (for us), Mushy
Final track Parturition is the last calling for sirens. Now press play.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
