Exploded View - Summer Came Early

Anika, the singer with Exploded View, is a phenomenon. We've listened to her music here before, and no-one has sung with the expansive blankness she does since the days of Nico. With her band Exploded View she doesn't have quite the same starkness that she did recording under her own name, but that's no bad thing: it's less sprechgesang and more actually sung. Maybe it's extra confidence on her part, but the extra melodicism is a success. Summer Came Early is the title track of the band's 2017 EP, and it's a sort of pastoral krautrock. Love the sonic textures at play here, finely grained and sleepy, and of course that remarkable voice.
