Gacha
When The Watchman Saw The Light
Apollo Records
Street: 01.26
Gacha = Guy Andrews + HVL
This six-part album is a compendium of percussion, gentle guitars and ethereal vocals provided by the lovely Natalie “TBA” Beridze. Gacha’s album seems, to me, like the Georgian’s take on the progression from light into darkness. The album starts off light but soon takes shape and builds momentum. The final track, “Afterglow,” is dense and much harder than the others on the album, but it’s this factor that makes it such a remarkable story. Those who think electronica is redundant and bland need to reevaluate their stance after listening to this distinct piece of art. –Kamryn Feigel
