Comment: YlangYlang is the prolific (French) Canadian Catherine Debard whose 11-track issue is pure sonic joy for filling your sunshiny day. Her sound consists of a sort of sound which was popularized by such artists as Julia Holter, Maria Minerva, Laurel Halo, Grimes. More concretely, it consists of vowel effects which used to sway from one channel to another or one vowel sample is simply superimposed by other ones thereby either creating psychedelic or crystalline sense. Furthermore, Debard`s issue is varicoloured with some free folk compositions where concrete music drenched backgrounds create fairly unusual feeling to bold guitar chords in the foreground. The release finishes off with a soothing ambient composition where briny undulation is brought to the front. In a nutshell, the outlet is a fair notch of the blossoming Canadian music scene and was certainly one of the best albums in 2014.
