Laurel Halo - 'Chance of Rain'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 28, 2013
  • Label: Hperdub
7 / 10 Thanks to a career that’s meandered through synthpop, electronica and the odd bit of avant-garde techno, Michigan-born producer Laurel Halo has neatly avoided pigeonholing. Last year’s vocal-heavy ‘Quarantine’ felt like a leap towards a fully formed sound, but now ‘Chance Of Rain’ arrives to throw another new configuration into her sonic flux. The meditative ‘Ainnome’ zips by with a cinematic chug that thumps deeper with every replay, and the off-kilter judder of ‘Thrax’ builds and falls like a dizzying hallucination caught inside a Tetris puzzle. Vocal-free, ‘Chance Of Rain’ sees Laurel Halo once more stepping back behind the sounds of her machines, but it’s the depth of those sounds that speaks volumes.
