Tusia Beridze (TBA)‘s Annule is an uneven slew of listless vamp ballads, Aphexian synth tinkering, fragmented examinations of her soul, and trip-hop excursions. There is little here that has not been done by many others in their bedroom studios, but some moments haunt. "Urs" is a deathbed lullaby, as Beridze struggles to paint verses with her last breath, and her whispers draw blood in the moribund dub of "B>lan." She also executes some fine swordsmanship on the title track‘s broken beats and an acute sense of tomfuckery on the Gameboy jumble of "Dread." Keep her under watch.
