Loula Yorke is a Suffolk based electronic musician who has released a captivating, glitchy new album titled LDOLS. It stands for “last day of little school,” and the project is dedicated to her daughter. This is my first introduction to the talented musician, and it’s a captivating, glitchy body of work.
“Untitled #001” kicks the album off with slow-paced glitchy sounds and what sounds like percussion. The tense mood is driven by the synths and glitchy, off-kilter electronic effects throughout. It’s a dense and textured track, just like the other 5 tracks on this project. For the most part, the album sounds more forward and aggressive in tone, such as on “Untitled #004” with vocal samples and dense bass-heavy beats throughout. The synths on “Untitled #005” are pretty great, with the percussion ringing through as well, while the tribal and raw energy of “LDOLS” makes it a perfect closer to the album. The synths sound more colourful and optimistic in tone in comparison to the dark energy of the rest of the album. Overall, the album is a dense and glitchy masterpiece, and I definitely look forward to hearing more music from the talented producer.
