Breath taking

This artist is astonishingly amazing and her songs are pure works of art I would highly recommend buying this track



It's a good, catchy album. I find it quite relaxed while listening to it and would love to hear more of her stuff in the future.


One of the best indie/ electronic debuts this year ...

Brilliant debut from Toronto/Brooklyn based singer Lydia Ainsworth ... it's rare that every song on an album is a standout. The Kate Bush and Bjork influences are quite strong but her music seems to draw from many other varied sources too, ranging from the Bulgarian Women's Choir to Middle Eastern music, haunting orchestral sounds, ethereal and delicate at times, soaring, glitchy or disembodied at others. My only complaint would be that at 8 songs it is too short, leaving me wanting more.
Standouts for me are : PSI, Malachite, Moonstone, The Truth.

About Lydia Ainsworth

Canadian producer Lydia Ainsworth developed the minimalist electronic pop songs that would make up her first solo recordings from audio sketches she made while enrolled in a film-scoring program at Montreal’s McGill University. Splitting her time between Toronto and Brooklyn, Ainsworth recorded for years, drawing on her love of a wide variety of shadowy musical influences as well as her background in composing and orchestration to craft her tracks. A self-taught cellist, Ainsworth blended string arrangements and layers of vocal samples into her tunes, augmenting sparse, eerie electronic beats with walls of dense Kate Bush-informed vocals. Her debut album, Right from Real, appeared in 2014 on Artbus Records, the Canadian indie label that also served as a home for like-minded artists such as Grimes and Doldrums. Her second LP, a still bolder set of electro art pop titled Darling of the Afterglow, arrived via Artbus and Bella Union in 2017. ~ Fred Thomas
