Sool is the fourth full-length solo release (following Stadtkind, Berlinette and Thrills) by the inimitable queen, Ellen Allien. Welcome once again to the Allien world: this one is subtle, mysterious, and minimal. Created in the deepest and darkest of Berlin's winters, 2007-2008, Sool is intended to be a valve, a loophole, a respite from the crazy summers into the introspection and hibernation of winter. This could easily be Allien's most intimate album yet: The sounds of everyday life and snatches of whispers reveal themselves with field-recorded closeness, the beats are as soft and as near as a heartbeat, ambient synth sounds are as long and spacious as an arm stretching across a couch.
