Madison’s insular lineage of sonic reducers replenishes at an impressive clip, so it’s both no surprise as well as a real treat to offer up the debut LP by one of the city’s freshest next-wave arc welders, Golden Donna. The solo soundworld of instrumental synthesist Joel Shanahan, GD incorporates a drained rainbow of niche hues into its multiverse: tranced sequencer constructs (“Shifter”), solar flare R&B (“Paulding Light”), glittering deep-space isolationist drift (“Infinite Earths,” “Flashing Hands Of Carousel”). The interplay of smooth rhythm and ambient body awareness tone-float gives the record a woozy in-and-out-of-focus quality, like coasting through clouds on codeine on a private jet. Grab a window seat.
