A Marshmallow Called Moon is the new album, mining the sweet natured side of acid and glitch* (you might think of the Richard D James Album) - colourful, spacefaring hooks abound. The process of writing the album was something akin to painting backwards - start by splattering a huge pile of chaos onto the canvas, then carve out a song like a sculpture. Marshmallow is the coming together of a sound and a feeling that YG has been working on for three albums now - and this is the joyous culmination.
Dream Glitch Electronic*
From the most isolated capital city on the planet, Western Australia’s Young Girl stands on the shoulders of Aphex Twin / Squarepusher et al.
Picture an uncanny ability to manufacture primordial chaos and carve out of it a strange, futuristic sense of order. All warmth, depth, edge, musicality and galaxies of hooks.
Young Girl comes with a daring hybrid live / electronic set, absolute music and performance rather than a dance set - the kind of set that has people stare, engrossed, or leave the room confused. There’s little in between with Young Girl.
