Inca Ore – “Brute Nature Vs. – Weird Forest” – [Weird Forest Records]

This here is an audio exploration in vocal instrumentation. These are the almost a Capella sounds of Inca Ore’s (aka Eva Saelens) voice. There is no singing here, she uses her vocals as an instrument to create a meditative yet eerie soundscape of vocal drones and ghostly moans. Its pretty amazing what this woman is doing with mostly her voice, multiple tracks and all sorts of layering. Side A includes short tracks, some of which have decipherable vocals (words along side sounds), guitar clicks and scrapes, or chimes and bells. The sounds here are thick but at the same time sparse. It teeters between nerve wrecking and meditative with heavenly hums and banshee-style moans. There is no percussion anywhere here, and very little non-vocal instrumentation. Side B is 20 minutes of vocal moans and drones. Its moody, its got dynamic, it sounds like a group of people moaning and groaning as they fall down a bottomless pit. Lots of these tracks end abruptly, so watch out for that. This album is beautiful, striking, piercing, relaxing, abstract and slightly uncomfortable all at the same time. -Surfer Rosa
