This music recommendation is from close to home – the latest release from my Provenance label. It comes from Melbourne producer Arrom, and is a collection of reworks from her debut album Take My Lymphs. Each new variation draws on the experimental pop, ethereal choral vocals and dark, organic electronics of the original album, and moves it, with a great fluidity, into new spaces. It’s a miscellany of avant electronics – dark pop, abstract, minimal and even a momentary slice of breakcore.
Take My Lymphs Remixes also acts a love letter both to and from five contributors who were involved in the creation and release of the original album. Artist include Provenance label mates Aphir and KAIAR, along with co-writer Ahm, experimental house producer Hypersleep, and Yet Variant, who plays synth and percussion in Arrom’s live band. In addition, Arrom delivers her own re-work of the album’s opening track, Stardust.
To celebrate the release of her new EP, she has also curated the Provenance Spotify playlist this month, which features music from Bjork, Kiasmos, Andy Stott, Mazzy Star, Burial and more. It is a thing of great beauty, one that persists. Listen here.
