Anastasia Coope :: Darning Woman

Citing influences such as 80s art-rock, Trish Keenan, Brigitte Fontaine, medieval choruses, church choirs, 50s harmony groups, and more, Coope almost sounds something like coalescing into Nico fronting early Animal Collective. Her deep, hypnotizing chant-like singing leads warbled, gossamer folk into an air of surreal stream of consciousness – her self-looped vocals, guitar, and sparse piano lines echoing against themselves in spectral delight, building cavernous choral fantasies where the tiresome realities and expectations of everyday life fold in on themselves.
