Album of the Week: Kelly Lee Owens | LP.8.2

“abstract industrial beauty”

Those are the words Smalltown Supersound used to describe Kelly Lee Owens last full length, LP.8, and they certainly fit this mini album follow up. Owens together with avant-noise artist Lasse Marhaug described their intent for LP.8 as being somewhere in between Throbbing Gristle and Enya.

 In antiquity there was only silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. Today, Noise triumphs and reigns supreme over the sensibility of men. Luigi Russolo from The Art of Noises (1913)

I’m reminded in some ways of Lucrecia Dalt because Owens is also a master builder of strange and entrancing worlds, part electronic part human. Fall into LP.8.2‘s abstract industrial beauty and let it embrace your full weight.
