Heathered Pearls ‘Cast’ (Ghostly International)

The third Heathered Pearls album from Polish-born, NY-based Jakub Alexander mixes non-scripted recordings of friends with ambient dance tropes to create a kind of liminal club space. ‘Ultra Blue’ and ‘An Obstruction In The Clear Plastic’ are like experiencing a night from the outside in, bass throbbing, melody drowned by the brick and mortar. While there are moments where the spoken word goes a bit strong on the Burrough’s tip (“bitter lip as you negotiate a curtain of dresses mint green and bloodily embroidered”), ‘Cast’ is an experimental feat from an artist to watch.
