Sa­mara LUBELSKI

Flick­ers at The Sta­tion

UNCUT - - New Albums - Rob HUGHES

Draw­ing room 7/10 New York free-noise prac­ti­tioner gets mel­low

Lubelski’s list of cred­its, ei­ther as stu­dio engi­neer or bass player/vi­o­lin­ist, is as im­pres­sive as it is wide, span­ning Thurston Moore, Fiery Fur­naces, MV & EE, Oneida and heaps of oth­ers. She’s also been part of Moore’s Chelsea Light Mov­ing project, a fur­ther ex­ten­sion of her avant-garde ten­den­cies. This lat­est solo ven­ture (in con­junc­tion with Ger­man col­lec­tive Metabolis­mus) is del­i­cately pitched be­tween dream-pop and im­pro­vised drones, her pil­lowy voice backed by arpeg­gio’d gui­tar, or­gans and itchy syn­thet­ics. “Black Dots” is a stand­out, while the freefloat­ing “Im­po­si­tions” feels like some dis­tant rel­a­tive of Felt or The Pas­tels.
