Klara Lewis – Live in Montreal 2018 (Editions Mego, CD/digital)

Since the unexpected death of Peter Rehberg, Editions Mego's hours are numbered. But some of the outstanding projects are still being handled by friends and staff. Fortunately, it must be said. Because Klara Lewis' »Live In Montreal 2018« alone is the kind of release that makes sense on Mego alone: stubborn, uncomfortable, of peculiar beauty. Moving between gruelling rhythms, generous use of samples and shimmering pads, the experimental musician once again proves how much potential there actually is in the »laptop music« that had been spearheaded by Rehberg.
