Inca Ore Phones It In (MP3)

Musician Inca Ore (aka Eva Saelens) phoned it in recently — that is, the Oakland, California-based musician participated in the great podcast Phoning It In (phoningitin.net, associated with KDVS 90.3 FM radio), in which acts are interviewed and play music over the phone.

The result could turn even the most high-end production into a lo-fi affair, but as Saelens and the show’s host discuss early on in the broadcast (narrowcast? shallowcast?), it really just adds a cozy, old-school, AM-radio vibe (MP3). “It’s right in line with my fidelity,” she says, listing among her favorite effects “tape hiss” and “far-away sounds.”

For her five-song set, Saelens plays distant, droney, maudlin keyboard-oriented work with a mindfully meandering quality, haunting and evocative. She jokes, in perfect deadpan, that she’s gone gospel, but the effect is arguably more druid.
