Eartheater - RIP Chrysalis (Cassette)
RIP Chrysalis is Alexandra Drewchin's second full-length album under the Eartheater moniker released on Hausu Mountain in 2015. At any given moment, an Eartheater composition reads somewhere between a folk song, a musique concrète collage, and a filmic suite fit to soundtrack a cosmic montage that only she can imagine in full detail. Her intricate ballad arrangements rise from standing pools of hi-fidelity synthesis, while her dynamic vocal performances span an untold number of tactics and tonalities. Eartheater builds layered electronic productions possessed of enough detail to constitute stand-alone worlds, each weighted thick with text and texture.
