Today’s featured AMM track “Sunset” is on Caroline Polachek‘s second album released earlier this year; Desire, I Want To Turn Into You, a poetic homage to the metamorphic powers of desire, sometimes ruled by a frenzied momentum. There’s exhilaration, there is anguish – and every detail is savored on Polachek’s striking arrangements. Desire can be as destructive as it is intoxicating, but above all else, it keeps us moving forward. Or…alive, perhaps?
