Comment: Ellah. a Thaun is a contemporary indie artist from France whose method is to embrace many elements into her idiosyncratic mix. Obviously it is not the ultimate purpose of her. It is the way how her music must be made up. This handful of tracks surprises again with its frantic touch though by the sound and loudness all is controlled by Nathanaelle Hauguel. For example, the opening piece Part 1 progresses into a sort of indie techno based on an elliptical catchy loop. It is the favourite of mine though the rest of the whole is also very good. She has always been strongly influenced by post-punk music and the influence comes out in the second part. Rough post-punk germs are crossed with the dreamy higher chords of shoegaze thereof resulting in a bewildering while majestic avant-pop composition. Part 3 showcases Hauguel`s exposure towards the motorik, towards krautrock though the drumming is vamped up by digitally modified thin kick drums as if all of that were extracted either from a contemporary soul or electro pop release. Part 4 is the outing's slacker track being stylistically grunge which lazily continues at Part 5 as well though being strongly intertwined with droning organs and wah wah effects. As if an early Stereolab meets Spaceman 3 yet the comparison is my mirage because that results in something very originally spiritual ultimately. In a nutshell, undoubtedly one of the best issues in 2017, and probably the best indie album in 2017 so far. Amazing gal indeed.
