Excerpted from the Foxy Digitalis Website:
“ace016: darwinsbitch “Ore” CD $13 darwinsbitch is fluid forms of drones, doomy laments, and folk melodies fleshed out from a backbone of sine oscillators and violin. As the sky opens up and pellets of ice begin to fall, there is warmth trickling through the cracks in the walls. Darwinsbitch finally makes her incredible debut a reality. “Ore” is a slow-moving masterpiece, the kind of album that takes a few listens to truly crack, but once you find yourself swimming inside it’s molten core, you never, ever want to leave. Behind these droning squalls is the lone figure of Marielle Jakobsons. Armed with her tiny army of sonic weapons, she concocts a lavaflow of melodies only to then bury them underneath a flowing river of muck. They creep out, though, and sink their teeth in when you least expect it.
“Ore” is a silent killer. Layered in textures and sound, Jakobsons knows how to weave an immaculate sonic tapestry that is stunning and profound. Laced with an austere sensibility, her music is a lesson in organic experimentation. She laces these austere drones with an all-too-often unheard delicacy and richness. In the end, it’s simply beautiful music.
Jakobsons also plays in the duo Myrmyr (with Agnes Szelag) and Date Palms (with her partner-in-crime, Gregg Kowalsky).”
