Mara Barenbaums solo vessel Group Rhoda emerged last year from an incubational phase with one of 2012s deftest debuts, Out Of Time Out Of Touch, an alluring sound-garden of jittery drumbox beats, moody exotica, DIY dub-pop, and elegantly aloof, shadow theater vocal melodies. Sustained tours both foreign and domestic soon followed, during which she began blueprinting 12th House, her sophomore release. Recorded and produced in collaboration with Ben Versluis in San Francisco, the albums eight songs snake through similarly entrancing terrain as her past work but the production here is starker and spikier, almost post-punk in its clarity. From witchy island pop (Day Ruiner, Dust) and dizzy, micro-cosmic disco (Coral Castle) to paisley-flavored circus-psych (Disappearing Ground) and wobbly, haunted house dub-damage (Space Race, Blk Mtl), the record is rich with Rhoda rhinestones and reflections. Her vocals are detached but discerning, casting strange dimensions into the music: finally you look away / you look a way / do you see ghosts walking around? / its your town / its their town too. A free-spirited and fascinating follow-up by one of Californias most intriguing young pioneers. Black vinyl LPs in vivid feline-fantasy collage jackets by Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough.
