After Hassle Hound’s second album and a split LP with kindred spirit Dirty Beaches, Ela Orleans finally releases the follow-up to her magnificent solo debut album Lost. Apparently there’s also 2 newer Ela Orleans albums on Clan Destine, but I won’t believe it until I have them in my hands. Anyway, this album features more of the sort of hazy, misremembered ’50s/’60s pop of her previous work, but perhaps a bit more sampladelic than the way Dirty Beaches does it. The beats on this album are a little bigger and more swingin’, but there’s also more live drums, and a few violin-heavy droning instrumentals. Still a little bit too hazy and spacey to throw on at your next party… unless it’s science fiction themed. The lyrics seem to be about space travel, falling in love, and how these two things are related. Lyrics are sourced from Ray Bradbury, Arthur Rimbaud, Sara Teasdale, and others. The whole album adds a few new dimensions to Ela Orleans’ already fantastic haze-pop sound.
