Following her debut album Penelope One for Optimo Music (OMLP 011LP, 2017), antipodean vocalist, musician, and soundscaper Penelope Trappes presents sophomore long player Penelope Two, for Houndstooth. Elements from multiple sources are subsumed by Trappes's sonic presence; one hears Badalamenti and Julee Criuse's work for Blue Velvet (1986) and Twin Peaks, Galaxie 500 and Slowdive's dreampop, the scorched comedowns of early Primal Scream, Tuxedomoon and Colin Newman's dark melancholia, plus contemporaries like Grouper, Tropic Of Cancer, and Sky H1. A deeply melodic record, with her intimate, maternally-tender voice floating in the middle of each three-dimensional, womb-like sonic space. Originally from Byron Bay Australia before moving to New York, meeting partner Stephen and developing experimental electronic projects Locke and Priscilla Sharp, prior to their best-know incarnation The Golden Filter. Cut and mastered by Matt Colton; Manufactured at optimal media, Germany.
