Not your average folktronic artist, Caitlin Park has single-handedly taken the genre and pulled it to the left with her abstract composition, electro-acoustic stylings and film nostalgia.
A sprawling, intricate and heart-warming foray into the soundscapes of old films, audio books, spoken word, and minimalistic musical arrangement, Milk Annual is as much an exploration in found sound and sonic design as it is an exhibition of modern folksong construction. Caitlin’s debut effort is an entanglement of excellent ideas.
Masterfully pulled together by Liam Judson (Belles Will Ring, Cloud Control, Sister Jane), and featuring performances by Holly Throsby, Aidan Roberts and a song co-written by Peter Broderick, Milk Annual is inspired by Steve Reich, the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, the sonic innovation of CocoRosie and The Sleeping State.
Joined by drummer ‘Brighton’ (Eliza Fawcett), you can expect to hear kids screaming, the clink of roped boats, struck matches and irregular heartbeats mixed with layered vocal sampling, overlaid by a singer with a voice that will wrap you up in a warm blanket.
