Praveen Backed By Spirits
- Words: Doug Morton
- Label: Neo Ouija
New York City IDM-operative Praveen Sharma could not have found a label more apt for his debut album. Softly fragmented melodies and iridescent ambience swirl together with subliminal depth on tracks like "Cecilia‘s Fruit" and "Melody" while "New Lovers" and "Piano in a Hurricane" complement the label‘s signature fusion of organic instrumentation in the artificial realm. "Real Memories" steps through a cooled cascade of symphonic echoes at a glitch-punctuated hip-hop tempo, followed in form by "Float" and "Haze" with further rhythmic explorations. The sonic imagery of Backed By Spirits is so vivid, you can almost watch the entire album.
