Despite the healthy number of releases listed on Attia Taylor’s Bandcamp page, the Brooklyn-based songwriter has been mostly absent as a solo artist for the past decade. In that time, though, she’s not only channeled her musical talents into the experimental psych outfit Strange Parts, but also founded such community-, art-, and social justice–minded outlets as Womanly and The Dorothy. Space Ghost, then, feels fully refreshed in its hazy sonics at times recalling Beach House and Broadcast, with the latest sample of the forthcoming album also seeing Taylor cite St. Vincent and Yeah Yeah Yeahs as inspiration.
Reworked from a recording on her 2009 EP Luxurious Corners, “Broad and Cherry” is an organ-guided trip through Taylor’s dating experiences from her late-teens and early-twenties. Much like the rest of the record, it takes an awkward—if not worse—period of her life and revisits it through the funhouse-mirror lens of a lush, looping psychedelic score. “This song has been a favorite of folks who like my music,” she shares. “I slowed the song down and added louder synth organs to make it bigger and more mature sounding.”
