When it comes to music, Karen Willems is an all-embracing soul. Best known as the percussionist of Yuko and Stef Kamil Carlens' Zita Swoon, she has manned the skins for a myriad of other artists: Delvaux, Nive Nielsen, Silver Junkie, and Kaboom Karavan, to name a few. With an eclectic resume of projects under her belt, Willems finally embarked on a more personal sonic journey in 2012: Inwolves. This is quite a different animal, a pet project bred in Willems' attic from her own artistic vision. With Air+, her debut release as Inwolves, Willems captures alluring, otherworldly sounds inspired by Meetjesland, a countryside area between Ghent and Bruges renowned for its vast, dynamic landscape architecture of forests, polders, creeks, and watercourses. Ominous yet soothing, the interweaving synth layers of bandmates Jürgen de Blonde and Ward Dupan coincide towards a primal rhythmic surge. But make no mistake: Inwolves doesn't draw much on traditional song structures, if at all. Includes download code.
