Producer/composer Velf dismounts her sherbet unicorn in order to announce new album in a sense on Orange Milk

I’ve got a fever. No, a real one. I know this because the thermometer just told me so. But coincidentally, I also have a fever for more cowbell/endless releases from Orange Milk Records, and the newest promotion from the Ohio-borne imprint (run by Seth Graham and Keith Rankin a.k.a. Giant Claw) is the sophomore effort from an artist whose music fits snugly into Orange Milk’s polygonal gap.

First, Valeria Zaklinskaya a.k.a. Velf released her debut EP Pernicious Serenity while she was getting her degree in electronic music production from Berklee College of Music; and now, the Los Angeles-based artist is releasing in a sense as an apparent response to the insufficient neon present in the outside world.

The prior EP exuded a degree of wonder and vibrancy that were completely in line with both the album and track titles. An aesthetic environment like the one that Roger Deakins created for Blade Runner 2049 certainly seems kick-ass and necessarily hyperfuturistic, but we shouldn’t neglect the nagging concern that an AI agent might manually dismember me at any point as well. That could be important.

in a sense clocks in at a little less than half an hour, and that time is reportedly used to add a sense of fantastic exploration to the confusing of senses that sound collages tend to promote. The album’s out October 25, and you can pre-order it here. Meanwhile, listen to the track “unhinging” below:
