The incredible Sophie Hunger. For her seventh album, recorded in Abbey Road Studios in London, the Swiss national subverts modern conventional practices and records herself in one take, challenging herself to avoid any postproduction corrections. An incredible feat that, created by the spontaneity of the recording, explores electric liveliness (Halluzinationen), bold 80s textures (Alpha Venom, Everything Is Good), folk nudity (Stranger) and sophisticated jazz (Maria Magdalena).
These varied sounds evoke, here and there, the sweet madness found in MGMT’s work, or even Radiohead’s melancholic purity (Liquid Air, Bad Medication). Greatly diverse in its musical direction, Halluzinationen hits all the right notes.
