Cielo Pordomingo is an Argentine composer, singer, songwriter and arranger. Her first effort which we reviewed entitled D FRET was a lush, multi-layered album that had a high production value. She is back with FUGALINE which is a worthy successor that has just as much to embrace and enjoy.
Up first is a single worthy track called “Escape” which combines a decent amount of experimentation with pop sensibility. The song sparkles with synth, buzzing bass and of course the vocals.
It's a solid opener which should have you somewhat hooked. Up next is "Insensible" which I preferred over the opener; this is more melancholy, haunting and just felt more emotionally resonant. The production on this track is slick. I enjoyed how the mood changed because of some additional synths that were added to the mix. I thought there were elements of Bjork on this track.
"Play with me" is a more straightforward club song with a fairly straightforward 4:4 beat. Catchy, not so subtle use of auto tune. There were hints of Saint Etienne on this song.
I preferred the more experimental track like the lush and ethereal "Quieta." "Caida libre" was another unique sounding track that had a whimsical vibe to it. There are a number of very unique tones on this track. It's also a very dynamic song, Make sure not to pass up "Laberinto" which is a song that is rich with orchestration. The album closes with "Something Changes.” It's a soft, subtle song which is certified headphone music.
I'd say FUGALINE is great album and a worthy successor to her previous effort. Don't sit on this one.
