51717 - Paranoia Star
Shadow Lust co-founder Lili Schulder’s 51717 project is routinely revered in NYC. Following a 2012 Opal Tapes offering, a 2015 split release with Silent Servant on Jealous God and many memorable live outings (including at the 2015 episode of Sustain Release), her debut solo LP is Paranoia Star - a lucid, encircling expression of her shadowy vision. A thoroughly thematic work, Paranoia Star employs industrial auras - metallic texture, foreboding tones, illegible voices, occasional chugging rhythms, fragmented environments - in a character sometimes desperate, sometimes aloof, always unsettling. At home - though unheimlich - on LIES.
