This track comes from Madalyn Merkey’s album Scent, released earlier this year. The album was mastered right here in Chicago at Experimental Sound Studio, which is definitely worth looking into; Merkey is a Chicagoan herself. She released the album on New Images Ltd., which is run by Real Estate’s Matthew Mondanile, aka Ducktails. Though this song features mostly synthesizer and effects, the album features heavily vocoded and otherwise processed vocals. Though I am wary to make unnecessary comparisons, I can’t help but draw parallels between her and fellow synth-goddess Laurie Spiegel. Decide for yourself!
