Lucrecia Dalt – Dicen

If Mondays generally make you feel tense and anxious, I’d suggest maybe skipping this one; and maybe the entire album from which it is taken. Lucrecia Dalt’s new album ¡Ay! does have contain some lovely melodies and lighter moments, but most of them are buried beneath twitchy, sketchy layers; rattling off-kilter percussion; warped, half-whispered vocals. It’s undeniably beautiful, but in a slightly panic-inducing way. And this weird video – despite it focussing on someone gently floating in water – is pretty much the opposite of relaxing.
