Leila Abdul-Rauf

“Diminution by Leila Abdul-Rauf is an otherworldly conglomeration of lonely trumpet, gauzy vocals, and ethereal electronics. It’s what it might sound like if Grouper were to hold high mass in Miles Davis‘s “Sanctuary,” while the residents of Courtempierre slowly shuffle through the fog outside. The “songs” slowly dissolve into pure abstraction, with echoes gradually overtaking the signal, so to speak, and you are dropped into a radiophonic vacuum of pure night.” — Heathen Harvest
