Double LP version. Welcome once again to the Allien world: The album Sool is subtle, mysterious, and minimal. This could easily be Allien's most intimate album yet: the sounds of everyday life and snatches of whispers reveal themselves with field-recorded closeness, the beats are as soft and as near as a heartbeat, ambient synth sounds are as long and spacious as an arm stretching across a couch, and everything is arranged in exactly the right place, as in a well-appointed parlor. But Sool also illustrates that minimal is not only meant for private moments, but also for the dancefloor. Some songs clang with an industrial aggression, others throb with a stark intensity, while still others gently coax you onto the floor just to break your heart.
