No Ripcord
Kelsey Lu's Church is as direct an opening statement as you will get this year. The cellist's debut is sparse in all the right ways, putting the focus on her voice, her playing and her lyrics.

Kelsey Lu recorded her debut EP live in a Brooklyn church with a loop pedal and Chairlift’s Patrick Wimberly co-producing. The music lingers and haunts, rich with sadness and unease.

Kelsey Lu's EP is a fascinating exploration of negative space. She has a beautiful voice that pairs well with her smooth cello playing. The entire EP was recorded live in a Brooklyn Church, which helps build the atmosphere of this work. I like that she unafraid of winding vocal lines, I hear elements of Bjork in the way she stretches out notes to draw out their maximum emotional potential. I love the experimentation, and I cannot wait to hear what she does with a studio album!

Recorded live in a church with her cello as the sole instrument, Kelsey Lu's debut EP is both eerie and majestic.
