Prefuse 73 “The Only She Chapters” (2011)

August 10, 2011

Prefuse 73 is a moniker for Guillermo Scott Herren, an electronic music producer from Barcelona. While his latest album The Only She Chapters seems like a great idea (musical landscapes with multi-layered vocals contributed by female singers, bringing to mind a church choir), the execution of it is mostly disappointing. Notable guests do fine (including Zola Jesus or Faidherbe) but the tracks lack focus. The only exception is the powerful and moving The Only Trial of 9000 Suns, a collaboration between Prefuse 73 and the late Trish Keenan of Broadcast. As the record was released after Keenan’s shocking death, ghost in the machine is the best term for her appearance.
