This is the music promo created by Eric Scott for "Tall Grey Buildings" by Malka Spigel, which has an official release with the EP "Gliding" on the Swim~ label on May 19. Enjoy the trippy kaleidoscopic and time-lapse sequences shot around LA and London last year, edited to Malka's shoegaze/dream pop sound.


In the winter of 2012, Malka Spigel played a series of concerts in France and Israel, with a full band, to promote her third solo album, Every Day Is Like the First Day. The performances drew not only on her latest record but also on several of her earlier releases, with older tracks (in completely rearranged formats) becoming highlights of the live set and, in turn, laying the foundations for Gliding.

Immediately following the 2012 dates, Spigel embarked on a studio project with the band. The objective was to revisit those live highlights as a springboard for recordings that would capture the power and dexterity of the musicians? live performances and at the same time channel their creative synergy into new sonic territory.

Gliding features the core lineup of Spigel (bass, vocals), her partner Colin Newman (Wire/Githead; guitar), Ronald Lippok (To Rococo Rot/Tarwater; drums), Gil Luz (Mambas; keyboards) and Uri Frost (Mambas; guitar). Also making appearances are Matthew Simms (It Hugs Back/Wire; guitar) and Julie Campbell (Lonelady; guitar).

As always, Spigel gathers an eclectic range of styles. Her signature dubby bassline and a rolling rhythm anchor the harmonically lush "Strumgliding." Dating from Spigel?s 1993 solo debut, Rosh Ballata, the Hebrew-language "Hacol Zaram Beyachad" (featuring Campbell on guitar and backing vocals) is elegant in its simplicity. Meanwhile, on "Tall Grey Buildings," Spigel transforms the austere urban landscape into blissful pop, in the process reinventing shoegazing for 2014. By contrast, the closer, "Dreamwalking," is a darker, harder-edged, more mysterious affair, with its kaleidoscopic layers of guitar, Mellotron and heavy, distorted bass. (The tracks were finished and mixed in swim~ studio by Colin Newman.)

Gliding is a transitional record, or perhaps a prologue, for Spigel: this is very much the work of an artist on the threshold of a new creative cycle, reimagining existing material in intriguing, forward-looking ways, brimming with fresh ideas and pointing ahead in myriad directions.
