Vespertine was a departure from the sultry downtempo and chic IDM of Bjork’s previous albums, trading big room extravagance for reticent experimentalism. With the assistance of Matmos, Opiate and Console, she deploys samples of cracking ice, footsteps in the snow and shuffling cards over a bed of intricately-programmed microbeats for an album that has been described as both ‘domestic’ and a ‘winter’ record. Lyrically, Vespertine finds Bjork in a considerably vulnerable zone, musing on feelings of love and longing for isolated intimacy. The result is some of the darkest (‘Pagan Poetry’) and most intimate (‘Heirloom,’ ‘An Echo, A Stain’) work of her remarkable career. All killer, no filler; Vespertine is mesmerizing from start to finish. Limited edition 2019 white colored cassette, recommended.
