When Adelaide enigma Rites Wild, a.k.a. Stacey Wilson, arrived in Los Angeles, her show got busted up by the cops before she even got to play (nice priorities, LAPD). Even so, she made a lasting impression, and her self-released EPs of minimalist, Echoplexed swoon-songs further stoked the fire to do a full-length.
Ways of Being collects the blackest pearls from three hyper-limited cassingles (released via her own, now-defunct Faux Friends label) as well as adding a handful of newer, previously unreleased cuts for an ideal spelunk into Rites Wild’s memory-haunted grey-crystal waters. Layering dusty church-organ drum-box rhythms with drone-dirge keyboard loops, spectral-melody shadowplay and monotonic bedroom vox, Ways of Being rides the ridge between vertical horizon raga rituals and young, marbled hypno-pop in an endlessly mesmerizing fashion, signaling a distinct new voice in the garbled membrane of global noise. Edition of 450!
