Bold, broken and as TOXIC as a gulp from the Thames - nearly fifty minutes of live damage from Lolina and a welcome re-dose of her themes for a nightbus-to-nowhere.
Dismantled and pasted back together in real time “Live In Geneva” reveals the flesh n bones of these dizzying productions, all the disorientating elements and abstractions of the hits laid bare - yah, the HITS.
Amidst a sea of unpredictable, maverick-dancehall and glitch'ing, GLISTENING electronic laments lie those now cast-iron anthems, ones that we will still be reaching for in years to come when LC is a cold, dead husk and our wee shoppe is reverted back to a hairdressers. Wah! Truly struggling to recall a deadlier one-two crossing the threshold than “The Smoke”’s “Style & Punishment” / “The River” - every ounce deranged as they are anthemic, these two slabs of open sewer electronics wheeze in and out of focus, stampeded by dance-with-the-traffic beat cycles and sluggish bass hooks - all these takes, strung out and subjected to subtle automations to create a stunning, hi-def, ALMOST kosmische wandering commanded only by Lolina’s quick-witted, inner mind theatrics.
Disintegrated pop blizzard, highest recommendation!
