Laila Sakini - Your Day is My Night
Purely Physical’s miniature yet substantial Teeny Tapes label has tendered two previous goodly offerings: Max Eilbacher’s torn piano pattern distortions A Crude Explanation Of Russell's Paradox and before that the endlessly rinsable poetic-electronic collaboration between Laila Sakini and Lucy Van, Figures. Sakini returns for their third gamble with a mixtape meditating on “contrast, distance, romantic differences and polar energies” entitled Your Day Is My Night. Recorded in Brussels just this spring, the tape traverses the unique musical terrain of Sakini’s mindscape, beginning with plaintive flute summons and delving into reverberant classical guitar ripples, inky ambient swan dives, rusted rhythmic nuances, baroque synth scenes, undressed pop hymns and more. The Melbourne-born artist, Careful Listen podcast curator and regular NTS radio contributor continues to expand the assumed thematic ambits of the DJ with finesse and commitment to experimentation.
