UV RAPTURE “Cardea” C30 (Vernal Pool)

Gracefully fitting in* between indie-divas Björk and Julia Holter, Providence, RI’s Rachel Asher, under the nom de guerre “UV Rapture”, paints up half-trancy/half-dancy dreamy synth-pop with production precision. Her just-an-ounce-heavier-than-ethereal vocals float gently above warm and twinkling synthesizer ambiance and supporting drum machines, stalwart bass, and a caché of supporting/accenting guitar licks somewhat reminiscent of Mazzy Star, without being in any way a reboot. 

Great study music or for just sitting on the porch with iced tea, watching clouds drift along.
