Arca – Arca

Arca – Arca

Released March 31st, 2017


Though described by one critic as “one of this generation’s most forward-thinking electronic musicians” and another trying to convince you that Arca is ” Transmuting the hopelessly bittersweet suffering and anguish of life into blindsiding art” there is in reality really nothing good to say about Arca’s self-titled third album. While some (as mention previous) have raved about the sparse haunting chords, eerie silences, foreboding sounds and hymnal chanting (the new addition of vocals of any kind is arguably noteworthy) it’s boring to listen to, completely unmemorable, and blindsidingly bad.
