ShadowBox “A M” Pictures Music
We received this surprisingly breath-taking but very short album today from Pictures Music, a UK based record label who has released some really good sounds that we are finally catching up to. ShadowBox is the self-reliant musical pathways of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Bonnie Baxter. Prophetic, complex yet catchy electronic music is becoming the norm in these days, with artists like Bjork and other vocalist, producers and instrumentalists paving the way to a new ideology in the creation of music. ShadowBox’s musical atmosphere reminds me of artists like Bjork, Tokimonsta, Lapalux, Portishead and Emika. A 12″ vinyl is in the works that will include these two tracks.
Brooklyn’s Bonnie Baxter emerges bellowing from a dark sea of sizzling electronics. Kicks and degraded snares fight cascades of bleeps falling delicately over harsh electronics. ShadowBox is powerful, poised… her live act shows a wild and uncontrollable force who at times lets the listener into a delicate and reflective world just for a moment. It’s just ShadowBox and her machinery joined by Icky Doome live. – Pictures Music
