Largely recorded from her home studio in Mexico City, where the Brooklynite-by-way-of-Detroit recently relocated, ‘Aquamadre’ is a ten-track exploration of pain and finding the salve for it amidst the chaos. Reed enlisted Autre Ne Veut to produce the album, and her life partner musician Erik Deutsch (Leftover Salmon, Citizen Cope, Norah Jones) to craft the haunting soundscape, which stretches from sparsely instrumented meditations on healing (“Heal Your Pain”, “I Will”) to victorious emotional celebrations of calm (“Life 2 Be Adored”).
Inspired by Reed’s lifelong study of astrology and tarot, the songs here are equal parts pop and experimental, built off swirling synthesizers, slinky guitars, and hypnotic beats, and Reed’s performances are breathy and captivating to match. At times angelic, at times haunting, she sounds otherworldly, but her writing is very much grounded in the emotional reality of modern womanhood and the seemingly impossible contradictions it demands.
