Insect Ark - Long Arms review on Steelforbrains.com

steelforbrains:

…Schecter dissects each note with a fevered focus, engaging her instruments not simply as a means to an end but perhaps as an extension of herself…the relationship between both the dissonance and harmony that twist themselves, vine like, around each track here…the grandiose is reduced to a captivating and sonically moving singularity that bears no need for over production.  The sounds here are laid bare, with each note wriggling its way to the surface before muting itself to be buried and revived again in the loop….It’s the passages Schecter creates to get there that are wholly brilliant and haunting.  (excerpt; full review HERE)
