EKIN FIL
Heavy LP
18
Vaagner 04 / GER / 2019
This is also how Ekinʼs work initially caught the labels attention; at first listen it sounded like a unearthed Grouper demo, a parallel that can be drawn respectfully, seeing Ekinʼs trade marks are also those forlorn, muffled vocal whispers, layered under sentimental tape loops, paired with ambience and feedback. The album itself was originally produced in 5 years ago during what Ekin Fil recalls as a down right depressing and tumultuous time during which she turned to music as a measure of rehabilitation. Heavy was later released on tape via Lee Nobles No Kings label in 2016 and re-mastered in 2018 from the tape rips by Rashad Backer, preserving the fragile and heavy hearted auditory sensibility found in the original work, while making one of Ekinʼs earliest and most personally endearing releases available to a new audience of listeners.
