Jasmine Guffond I’m surprised hasn’t had a bit more notice. Her last album ‘Yellow Bell’ got decent attention. That album sets the scene for Traced but I think Traced is a big leap forward in her sound - basically glitchy electronics but very distinctive. In the past she’s recorded as Jasmina Machina with more vocals in a sort of intersection between folk & electronica and she also collaborated in an electronic project called Minit whose stuff is great too.
Sarah Davachi album is a really interesting one - her previous albums used a lot of electronics but this one uses a Ronseal approach on each of the tracks - ‘For Strings’, ‘For Voice’ etc. For fans of Kara-Lis Coverdale, Lawrence English…maybe even Tim Hecker and the like. I think Norman Records liked this one a lot so may crop on their EOY round up.
Glad someone else likes Colleen - not sure why that has flown under the radar.
