Karen Gwyer – a US-born Londoner – makes slow-burning and sexy “bath house”.

Needs Continuum’ (No Pain In Pop)– her beautiful electronic debut album, follows a 2012 EP on fellow No Pain In Pop artist Patten’s own Kaleidoscope label and an exclusive track on NPIP’s ‘The Bedroom Club II’ vinyl only compilation – was composed and recorded in the months before the birth of her first child. The record is both a product and champion of immutable, organic cyclical rhythms and disorientating psycho-physical disequilibria.

Amongst idiosyncratic, treacle-thick reinterpretations of classic house and digital-psychedelia there are elements of Fuck Buttons or Cabaret Voltaire, fellow Ann Arborite Laurel Halo’s deconstructed-Detroit King Felix Project, and Arthur Russell’s emotionally excavating avant-disco.
