New Material from Aby Wolf
After winning critical acclaim for 2009’s Sweet Prudence, Minneapolis’s best female vocalist Aby Wolf is already recording new material. Though “Silents” is still a work in progress, it sheds some possible insight into where the songstress’s sound is heading. An unabashed student of the school of Bjork, Wolf appears to be moving further in the experimental vocalist queen’s direction, eschewing Prudence’s folksy undertones for a starker, more elemental intonation. Silents is entirely looped acapella vocalization, with Wolf arranging the layers of her singing into a minimalist orchestra of stark beauty.
