WLISPS – “Plurals” – [Impko Records]

WLISPS is, as far as I can find, a one person project of sounds and video imagery, that person being Malaki Stahl. Out on the ever elusive IMPKO records from Seattle, WLISPS’ release, “Plurals” is a nine track exploration of many things experimental electronic. Soundscapes for sure and each track is surprisingly different yet comfortingly familiar. Do not be mistaken and think this is easy listening. No it is not, yet it is not noise either. Thoughtful, thought out deconstructions of sound, synthesized and digitally manipulated playing on chance outcome. Some tracks have beats with sounds floating around, up front and behind. Others are filled with drone and rhythm together. Stretched out coils, crunchy buzziness, distorted radio signals or not, machinery or was that nature. You think you know what it is then it is gone or twisted. “Plurals” is a generous helping of electronic fun.
