Un Autre Voyage (Holodeck)

Tape Deck

Atop a dramatic cadence of dark synth and minimalist beats, Marie Davidson's enchanting French-Canadian accent betrays her chilling, spoken-word poetry: "When we got back to the room I knew he'd wait for us – the crazy man at the bar, whispering, 'We ... are ... all ... burning.'" For Montreal's experimental electro chanteuse, working locally with Holodeck Records, solo album No. 2 is a bilingual sci-fi head trip that steals the listener into a beautiful and terrifying dream world. Amongst six long tracks, created sans computers, Davidson leaves you feeling changed.
