10 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

When the going gets tough, the professionals turn pop. Or at least that’s what the Canadian experimental/electronic pop duo Purity Ring have done on their second album, Another Eternity. Their debut, Shrines, relied on the adventurous forays that Megan James and Corin Roddick pulled off with few expectations upon them; they mostly wrote collaborated on the songs online while in different locales. For Another Eternity, working face to face gave them a palpable give-and-take that ensured tracks like “Begin Again,” “Stranger Than Earth,” and “Bodyache” achieved a human touch beyond electronics without losing the icy textures necessary to create their ethereal vibe.
