Holly Herndon Announces New 12"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Returning to standout Brooklyn label RVNG Intl. (one of our favorite labels of 2013) for the first time since her 2012 debut Movement, San Francisco-based artist Holly Herndon has announced the Chorus 12", both the artist's and label's first release of 2014. "Channeling YouTube, Skype, and other audio sources," the title track furthers Herndon's vocal explorations, this time harnessing samples from the Internet as well. On the flip, "Solo Voice" showcases a single track that "takes a rhythmic, polyphonic vocal effect customized by Herndon and spreads it across a spectrum of song to sputter for an unsettling minimalist accomplishment." The official release for Chorus is set for January 20. (via Juno Plus)
