Despite her first two albums’ staunchly uncompromising aesthetic, Holly Herndon has become an underground electronic-music star. Her 2013 debut full-length, Movement, sounds at times like a contemporary pop record trying to power its way through an electro-magnetic storm; every vocal’s serrated and funhouse-mirrored beyond meaning, rendering it into malleable aural putty. At other times, Movement comes off as a modern twist on the eerie, sparse work of Polish jazz-improv singer Urszula Dudziak. This year’s Platform is a bit more polished but just as fractured in its song structures. It’s like a Cubist Björk album, and one of the strangest artifacts with a 4AD logo on it; go straight to the gorgeously grotesque “DAO” for proof. Herndon is the rare artist striving to generate new forms of beauty in a scene rife with copycat underachievers and hardline nostalgia fetishists. DAVE SEGAL
