Default Ella Blame Duo

Ella Blame Duo's Ineffable Desire is full of blood and soul. And madness. Off-kilter, 4:00 A.M. raw, dark-night-of-the-soul madness. The CD cover with an outlandish ray of light beaming out of one of Ella's eyes conveys all of this. It's also the music that you wish would be playing in a sci-fi film where there's some future bar or club and people "dance" to bad synth music. Her voice, the heart and soul of the record, is the first thing that boggles the mind. Many of the songs have her voice covering almost her full range (she covers low middle and high registers with bull's-eye accuracy).

The madness comes from fear, confronting death, life intensity, longing itself, frustrated desire. Ineffable desire. Like the pure ectoplasm of uneasy spirits in a Korean or Japanese horror film; spirits trapped in pain and tormented by events that bind them from dimensions unknown to our own. Hers is the voice of horny ghosts in a future film.

Her collaborator, Michael D. Temple, creates the sonic walls that her intense visions of life are framed by and projected upon. All the elements are there - beats, guitars, a violin, bass, keyboard sounds - but in a way that pushes past the boundaries of the usual. Where someone like Bjork opts for austerity, here Ella and Michael opt for a lushness of rich and varied sounds, used tastefully, of course, and in the service of the songs, though not in the obvious ways.
