We’re told that Foam is quite a departure from her previous albums, opting for a sort of glitched jazz, dub, and ambient aesthetic. “It just might be the weirdest ambient/pop dislocation of the year so far.”
Featuring 14 new tracks, the album dissolves into a sort of jazzed bliss that’s best compared with Jan Jelinek and the piano minimalism of Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto’s recent collaborations, as well as the memory-frothed echo of claire rousay and Co La.
Mastering comes from Rashad Becker.
Straus is based in Philadelphia, having moved through Kansas and California. She has released music on an array of labels such as Quiet Time, Experiences Ltd, and West Mineral Ltd.
