Mara Barenbaum’s solo vessel Group Rhoda emerged
last year from an introspective incubational phase with one
of 2012’s deftest debuts, Out of Time—Out of Touch, an
alluring, sensory sound-garden of jittery drumbox beats,
moody exotica, DIY dub-pop and elegantly aloof, shadowtheater
vocal melodies. A series of sustained, long-form
tours—both foreign and domestic—soon followed, during
which time she began blueprinting the bones of 12th
House, her sophomore statement.
Recorded and produced in collaboration with Ben Versluis
in San Francisco, the album’s eight songs snake
through a similarly entrancing terrain as her past work, but
this time the production is starker and spikier, with an
almost post-punk clarity in places. From witchy island
pop (“Day Ruiner,” “Dust”) and dizzy, micro-cosmic disco
(“Coral Castle”) through paisley-flavored circus-psych
(“Disappearing Ground”) to wobbly, haunted house dubdamage
(“Space Race,” “Blk Mtl”), the record is rich with
rarefied Rhoda rhinestones and reflections. Her vocals
pirouette and perplex, detached yet discerning, casting
strange dimensions into the music: “Finally you look away
/ You look a way / Do you see ghosts walking around? / It’s
your town / It’s their town too.”
A free-spirited and fascinating follow-up by one of California’s
most intriguing young pioneers, 12th House features
vivid feline-fantasy collage artwork by Mary Elizabeth
Yarbrough.
