Gnod's Marlene Ribeiro has been adding a dose of drift to the band's recordings for years but N B marks her solo debut. Released last year in a scant run of 50 tapes, the album exists in a bubble of dub-pop filled to the edges with curling smoke, ghostly vocals and reverberating low slung bass that cascades off the walls. Familiar territory for fans of Peaking Lights, Hype Williams or Paco Sala, the record slots Ribeiro in nicely alongside modern dub miners as a new voice of psychedelic float. The LP adds two additional tracks to the original tape and they augment the experience of N B seamlessly, adding two extra dimensions of spectral flotsam to the mix. This one's in a run larger than the tape but surely won't stick around very long. Nab it while you can.
