Laika Wherever I Am I Am What Is Missing
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Too Pure-Beggars Group
With the shoegaze revival kicking into full swing, instead of waxing nostalgic, pay some respect to the ever-evolving, but always consistent Laika. Featuring alumni of early-'90s band Moonshake and backed by 4AD super producer and engineer Guy Fixsen (Breeders, My Bloody Valentine), Laika releases album after album of dreamy Krautrock-steeped electro funk. This is no major departure from the last record, nor need it be. Margaret Fiedler's soft, soaring voice continues to enchant while Fixsen's complex, Can-like backdrops continue to engage. And if you miss out this time, there will always be next time.
