Jane Weaver lives up to her name. For Modern Kosmology, she takes the motorik rhythms of Krautrock and blends in pop melodicism, operatic folk, electronic psychedelia and a bit of prog rock, to create a seamless musical tapestry that is as intriguing as it is unclassifiable. The moods shift from dark to light, the sound from heavy and claustrophobic to spacious and airy, the impressions from pastel to primary colors. Everything is in connected, but in constant motion. For me, it was like being inside a large musical kaleidoscope. It is a stunning bit of adept musical shapeshifting, and a very entertaining listen.
Modern Kosmology is out now via Fire Records.
