Nicole Oberle is a prolific and enigmatic artist whose work in the fields of textural ambient music and lo-fi beat-oriented work unfolds to reveal layers of emotional transparency and honesty. Skin – Oberle’s first release for Whited Sepulchre Records – comes in as a wash of blackened drone, everything riding just a bit above the red, creating an overladen and disorienting rush. Even when Oberle opens up to incorporate birch-bare guitar lines, forlorn piano chords, disembodied vocal drones, fragments of poems and crushing beats, everything is saturated with a palpable sense of foreboding. There is a measurable heaviness imbuing every motion creating this record.
