Sabina Plamenova first released records under the name Subeena—most notably for Planet Mu—before the Berlin-based producer/vocalist shifted into the more experimental Alis project. Lifted from her forthcoming Things Next Door EP for Astro:Dynamics, "Leslape" is a granular and warped tune that recalls a number of Andy Stott's heavily textured soundscapes on Luxury Problems. A steady groove pushes along a stream of sighs and gasps while a thinly shrouded lead vocal pierces through the fog. The simplicity and off-the-cuff nature of Alis' song keeps it from veering too far into experimental indulgence, as she reigns in "Leslape" to make for a quick-but-immersive experience.
