#446 Cold Specks – Absisto

Al Spx, aka Cold Specks, will return with her sophomore album Neuroplasticity in August. If the title is a bit more of a tongue twister than debut I Predict A Graceful Explosion, the music has ticked up a few notches too. Where her first record was about a stripped-back, raw bluesy feel, if first taste ‘Absisto’ is anything to go on this is bigger, bolder, and somewhat more twisted. According to Spx, ‘Absisto’ is in a group of three songs she describes as “the more unusual songs” on the record, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to see just how far this change of direction goes.
