Flickers At The Station: There are experimental musicians that know how to well craft the best of pop music, and there are pop musicians that know how to experiment at upper echelons of instinct. Samara Lubelski is both of these musicians in one. It may be a bold statement, but yes, it is true, every word. Her breadth of experience in both of the otherworldly sides of these spheres grants her an enlightened gift in song writing. It is elegant and transporting, and it coalesces in that golden new age of purple and orange psychic pop music that ducks its head into the present realm from time to time.
Flickers at the Station is an album that showcases Lubelski at a creative apex. Beautiful and breathtaking, it is a forever keeper of a baroque pop record. It’s late evening music. It’s early morning revelation music. It’s a glorious day unto itself. The pure connection between Lubelski’s outré improv and instrumentation and her pop–psychic songwriting is in complete harmony.
Recorded in 2017 in Germany with Lubelski’s forever time collaborators, Metabolismus, and others, Flickers at the Station is an essential statement of sumptuous glory. It’s a cerebrally sensed listening expedition with all future endings open and most hopeful. Bless yourself with this one.
Flickers at the Station is Lubelski’s first solo album of all new material since 2016’s The Gilded Raid.
Mastered by Josh Bonati, the limited 180-gram LP comes in a high-gloss full colored sleeve along with an inner-sleeve and fold-out poster. A unlimited digital version is also available.
