Laurel Halo, Quarantine. L’mono Bilbao. 3 Nov. 2012.
This last saturday, Laurel Halo has been in L’mono Bilbao, giving us her power as a musician and performer. She started with lots of power….her movements with electronic machines were amazing. She was sweating, she was thinking, she was playing. Everything was calculated as mathematics. Exquisite Laurel Halo Live! Moreover L’mono space is a magic space for this kind of concerts, low lights, small place, the nearness of the artist with the audience and the industrial location. The Underground place of Bilbao always is an experience.
Laurel Halo, this Michigan native, now living in Brooklyn, makes tracks that float in the netherworld between song-structured pop and programming-led instrumental beat-scapes. Her thrid&last album, Quarantine, is produced by Hyperdub record label, founded and run by Steve Goodman, aka Kode9. Artists who have released on Hyperdub include label owner Kode9, Pressure, and Burial.
