EDITORS’ NOTES

Moody and mercurial in tone, atmospheric and expansive in production, the gothic electronic pop on Madness is perfectly calibrated to soundtrack the spine-tingling climax in a deeply emotional drama. Evocative track titles reveal the stirring tableaux singer/songwriter Maggie Eckford and her collaborators conjure in their songs: The haunting “Bad Dream” opens with a swirl of tinny treble piano and hollow knocks before Eckford’s hazy vocal kicks in; in “Game of Survival,” cat-and-mouse chords give way to a stomach-churning midsection of galloping percussion.
