Dolls, The – “S/T” – [Huume Recordings]
The Dolls is a 2005 collaboration between Finnish producer Vladislav Delay (Sasu Ripatti), Scottish composer Craig Armstrong and German electronic vocalist Antye Greye. Craig Armstrong’s sublime and sometimes heavily processed minimal lounge jazz piano is merged into subtle, still glitchy beats, electronic textures and sounds. Humanity is provided by Antye Greye’s hushed chanteuse vocals and experimental singing. Caution, this album requires listening, it’s stark but also complex in nuances.
