On the Legs of Love Purified


Artist: Chasms
Label: Felte
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 14 October 2016

Chasms is the San Francisco based project of Jess Labrador and Shannon Madden. The duo crafts percussive dirges that are at once beautiful and menacing. Labrador's haunting vocals and hypnotizing guitar work wade between rhythmic bass lines and bursts of Madden's stinging feedback, laid on a bed of pummeling drum programming.

On the Legs of Love Purified is Chasms debut full-length album. It's a trippy, industrial sounding offering that has to be heard to be appreciated. The LP consists of 7 songs (33 min, 20 sec), with personal highlights including 'Beyond Flesh' and 'Intimacy'.

There's a sweet, subtle veil that shrouds this album in intimacy and, in places, sounds ethereal. For a chill out album, this is pretty impressive.
