the kindness comes from a closer listen –
Another female artist making ripples is Austrian installation artist Christine Schörkhuber, known for recording purposes as Canned Fit. Her latest album on pan y rosas discos is a prime example of the type of vocal album ACL does cover, in that the lyrics take a back seat to the music and manner of delivery. This is the sort of shot in the arm that could revolutionize the airwaves, if only anyone would listen. Cucharas de arena is an intelligent, experimental set, marked by questions of how a lyric should be delivered, as well as why. While less accessible than Golden Disko Ship, Canned Fit still leaves the windows open for listeners to come in. The whispery, percussive “circling in a square” makes a memorable impression, as do the horse trots, footsteps and deep breaths of “rosia montana.” By the time the bass checks in, the listener is mesmerized. When metal sheets and sand can be used as percussion, who needs drums?
