Maya Shenfeld – In Free Fall (Thrill Jockey, LP/CD/digital)

Maya Shenfeld moves between many different worlds. On »In Free Fall,« her solo debut on the Chicago label Thrill Jockey, the versatile interests and skills of the studied guitarist, composer and former punk with a penchant for sound synthesis come together in ever new constellations. None of the seven pieces, which oscillate between drone, minimal krautrock, sustained electronica and twisted choral music, sounds like the previous one, and yet they are united by an inimitable signature.
