Michelle Blades: Ataraxia

0005102865_10_optThe vocals range from haunting whispers to raw and angry yells as this album explores and mixes all manner of genre from punk and folk to electronic and even a touch of salsa. A good measure of the hallucinogenic is thrown in to fill the gaps. Many of the songs have multiple movements which change the pace and feel of them. Overall this is a fun listen, at its worst it is an interesting listen, at its best a wild experience. This album fits nicely with both punk and electronic music.
