El Perro Del Mar - MP3 - Rating: 10/10

El Perro Del Mar is the alter ego of Swedish singer/songwriter Sarah Assbring. Her style has covered a wide range within the genre of “pop” music, but these last few releases have evolved into some interesting territory. The songs are dark and atmospheric, relying on a blend of electronics and orchestral instrumentation as the base for her soft, reverberating vocals. If you were a fan of Julee Cruise you will be right at home here. The songs will gently wash over you and then occasionally drift into the sort of abstract, electronic experimentation that Sarah and her collaborator Jacob Haage had explored in their release Riptide. It’s these unexpected twists combined with the somber lyrical themes, focusing on death and loss, which make this an incredible record to experience.
