Mex­i­can-Ger­man duo con­jure up a spook­ily be­guil­ing sec­ond

Those for whom Björk’s re­cent for­ays into avant­garde elec­tronic pop haven’t been mys­te­ri­ous enough will wel­come Camila Fuchs. Full of eerie trem­bles and trills, Camila De Laborde’s voice is sim­i­larly ethe­real, if some­times numbed, and she and Daniel Her­mann com­bine to cre­ate glis­ten­ing, im­mer­sive sound­scapes that bor­row from anx­ious post-rock for “For All Sta­ble Ap­pear­ances, He Was Wild” and, on “Bat­tle­field”, re­an­i­mate Cranes’ early, skele­tal, gothic sound, swap­ping Mary Shel­ley’s in­flu­ence for Bal­lard’s. The fu­ne­real “My Body”, mean­while, finds De Laborde, like Anna Von Hauss­wolff, un­afraid of ex­plor­ing realms that Dia­manda Galás once imag­ined were ex­clu­sively her own.
