Bianca Scout discovers her love for the music of her most developmental years.
“At the end of last year I had a huge re-up of the shit I forgot I had incredibly listened to, like backtracking actions, you understand you simply keep going and some things go and some things remain,” composes Bianca Scout in a normally energetic, stream-of-consciousness e-mail discussing her particular contribution to Fact’s mix series. “Some things I’ve included to the mix have stayed, acting like they were covert for all this time, however to my pleasure they have resurfaced. I desired to consistof some of this music that hasactually been prominent to me, from one coast to the next. I would state this mix is like 5 various discussions, takingplace all at the exactsame time.” We can validate this is precisely as head-scrambling and fantastic as it sounds.
Emerging out of the exactsame haunting strangeness of Scout’s middleages pop, cyber folk odyssey, The Heart of the Anchoress, her mix deciphers as a uneasy, ADHD patchwork of post rock, ’00s pop, dubstep, chiptune and choral music, loosely sewed together with pieces of voice notes and diaristic asides from Scout herself. It’s the noise of the digital residue of a lost laptopcomputer wrung out into a non-linear narrative, like finding a lost folder of your preferred tunes from your most developmental and tender years. Avril Lavigne gets extended out and snapped back into shape, Caspa & Rusko battle for attention with 65 Days Of Static and ‘Miserere Mei, Deus’ gets sliced and screwed.
Forgotten breakcore experimenters Oddioblender get saved from the inmost depths of message board obscurity, while Scout casts YouTube feeling D4nny in the most unanticipated duet we neverever understood we frantically required. As the dust settles, we close on a generous wealth of unreleased and upcoming product from the multi-disciplinary artist, consistingof a thrilling look of brand-new music from Marina Zispin, Scout’s cold wave-channeling cooperation with UK power electronicdevices essential Martyn Reid. Between the hurting heart throb of ‘Flowers In The Sea’ and alluring synth pop euphoria of ‘Surprise Party,’ we couldn’t be more firedup about where Bianca Scout is going to take us next.
