Laika - Silver Apples of the Moon (1994) Retail CD
Laika (the name of the first dog in space) comprised Margaret Fiedler and John Frenett, formerly of avant-indie band Moonshake, with multi-instrumentalist Guy Fixsen drafted in to add further layers of sound. Their debut album isn't quite pop, isn't quite techno, isn't quite trip-hop, isn't quite post-rock, but slithers and slides obliquely between such established genres. Sometimes, as synthetic and fantastic as the title suggests, Silver Apples Of The Moon is equally mired in the sleaze of urban, everyday claustrophobia. "Let Me Sleep", for instance, is a suffocating burst of flutes, bongos,more… samples and marimbas, a nightmarish carnival, while "Honey In Heat"s sweltering cluster of tropical rhythms multiply the feeling of horniness rising like steam from the lyric. Typical of Laika's breakneck urgency is "If You Miss", built around a sample of a train at full speed, which sounds like an indie/electronica transcription of Emil Zola's La Bete Humaine. --David Stubbs
