Loopsel - The Spiral
Fans of the Swedish underground should be familiar with Elin Engström from her time playing in Monokultur, Skiftande Enheter, and excellent solo recording project Loopsel. Her debut album The Spiral manifests fragmented pieces of shimmering guitar, organ, and electronics creating a drifting ambiance that evokes a feeling of distance and mystique. An essential entry of the Gothenburg experimental music scene that never seems to run dry. The Spiral was originally released in 2019 as part of a multimedia spatial installation in Copenhagen, and subsequently reissued on Forlag For Fri Musik and Mammas Mysteriska Jukebox.
