Anna Meredith hooked me in back in 2016 with her album Varmints, a record that I really ought to revisit since it has had time to marinate in my brain. Long story short – it’s a record of some weird mutant chamber / art / synth / electro pop that evades all sorts of labels besides “definitely good”.
She’s returning with FIBS, out October 25 via Moshi Moshi. This is a lot more instrumental / aggressive than I remember the last album being, but it still has that signature anxious giddiness with excellent arrangement / orchestration I remember. Keep your eyes out on this one!
