Judith Juillerat Soliloquy

We were all shocked last year when this unassuming mom of two from some podunk town in France won Björk‘s remix contest with her slow-burn redux of "Army of Me." That track ("a(r)mour," included here) makes an appearance alongside 12 other equally menacing lullabies on Soliloquy, Judith Juillerat‘s first album. Juillerat drapes her wet-velvet vocals over oceanic synth washes and intricately syncopated techno crinkles, speaking volumes out of the silences embedded in haunting pieces like "vol-au-vent." Her sonic imagination curls like a piece of antiquated filigree, Victorian in its restrained ornamentation. An assured debut overall.
