Twelve inch vinyl pressing 2014 EP from Avalon Kalin (Polonaise, Finesse). EARRINGS dials back the atmospheric quotient somewhat, though there's still a rock-garden spaciousness to his mixes, each element arranged with regard to some higher harmony, the poetry of negative space. Recorded in his home studio - while dancing - the four tracks here flow between passages of pressure and release, euphoric but unstable, dusted with pyramid-chamber slap back and live dubbing acrobatics. Their melting clock asymmetries more closely echo Kalin's hardware improvisations with Scott Goodwin as Polonaise than the velvet vocal house of his other solo vessel, Finesse, but Temples is ultimately a holy place all it's own. A sleekly compelling statement from one of the Pacific Northwest's secret heroes.
