Moduler Quirky beautiful and strange, just like the birds personalities that inspired this wonderful set of songs. This release manages to balance the weird with the melodic, the established with the evolving. Marvelous! Favorite track: Marlene Magnoli - Tukan.


Marlene Magnoli’s birds are in flight.

With her latest EP, Flamingos, Marlene harnesses their sprightly, spirited accent; each of the four tracks plays with the personality of its feathered namesake. The EP starts off with “Ara,” a colourful number with a playful mood, eventually punctuated by the wink of a distorted birdcall. “Flamingo” moves the EP into a deeper territory, a wading melody underscored with churning clicks, crows, and notes like a wind-up toy. “Pelikan” mirrors the bird’s large throat: big swells of bass and a crescendo of atmosphere balanced by clamoring percussion and Marlene’s signature quirky tones. The fnale, “Tukan,” is a textural piece that builds slowly, picking up somber laughter and vocal clips, tripping over a continuous lazy drone that pulls the release’s four tracks together. Birds of a feather.
