Saralunden & Andrey Kiritchenko - There Was No End

from Vital Weekly #593:

Might of course be just me not knowing much, but the name Sara Lunden is new to me. She plays synthesizer, vocals, guitar and recorder and composes songs.
How she recorded this album with Andrey Kiritchenko (objects, drums, field recordings, programming, electronics and editing) I don't know. Did they sat together and made or did Kiritchenko add his part later? In any case, that is not of real importance, the music counts. A lot.
Lunden's voice is alike Portishead and other trip hop like artists, but the music is not like that all. Melodic and melodramatic glitch pop music.
There are elements to be recognized from the abstract clicks 'n cuts music, but the overall emphasizes lies on popmusic.
Maybe the voice is a bit too much like the triphoppers of this world, but throughout I must admit I thought this was a highly enjoyable release.
Careful, vulnerable popmusic with a great modern touch.
