The new Thom’s work might indeed be his best. Overall, it continues the familiar melancholic/spiritual glitch pop mantra started with Idioteque in 2000. ANIMA does seem to be the most complex, consistent, deep, and holistic so far. It will require many listens to immerse oneself enough.

Also, I was completely unaware that a new album was going to be released soon, after a wonderful score he made to wonderful Suspiria in 2018, even though his upcoming tour seemed suspicious, indeed.


Elena Tonra’s solo album is wonderful. There is not a weak song on the album. I must say I prefer it much more than Daughter’s work. There are influences of Arab Strap, The National, Radiohead, PJ Harvey’s “Is This Desire?”, other names I struggle to recall. It is very eclectic and enjoyable, I highly recommend you to listen. It’s a shame I found it with a lag.
