why we love this

We are mesmerized with the rich sonic worlds that Baal & Mortimer create. Listening to their music is like witnessing the process of metamorphosis in action. It's never static. It's always in motion. Filled with multiple engrossing layers that slowly unfold.

about the record

Baal & Mortimer is the ongoing project of Alexandra Grübler since 2014. Her pieces combine rich textures of electronics with complex layers of experimental vocal counterpoint - an effect at once hypnotically beautiful and eerily destabilizing. She dedicates herself to the sonic exploration of themes of resistance, autonomy and body conception.

After the release of their debut album 'Deixis' on Bureau B in 2020 comes The Torso Tapes. Eight new tracks that fold up epochs, landscapes and languages, turning them into the vertical and a new place each time. Layers of orchestral vocals emerge from brittle fog, icy traces of human activity and its mistakes. German, english, machine, human, male, female: corresponding to the same origin, changed, subdued and always elastic. A non-linear time oscillating between grainy drums and the melancholic pull of soundscapes, eternally pushed by choral echoes, singing against themselves.

Released on Italic in March 2021
