REVIEW: Ela Stiles - Ela Stiles
Unsurprisingly, the path chosen by Ela Stiles for this album differs from the music upon which she built her reputation in the Australian music scene. Among other projects, she has been a member of Songs, and her Bushwalking project released No Enter last fall (review here).. While Bushwalking utilized drone elements, it was fully amplified and more tribal in its drone mode, and also produced more standard pop pieces. And Songs is known for its engaging guitar pop.
The album is out now via Bedroom Suck Records, which also deserves a nod for its vision in choosing to devote its resources to such a unique project. For your evaluation, we've provided the lead track and a single edit for the closing track. Give it a chance.
