The avant-garde dream pop creations of HUSSY on "Slayer" is a self stirred intoxicant

Slayer by HUSSY (the dream pop project of South East London based multi-instrumentalist / writer / producer Sophie Nicole Ellison) has a free form post punk flavor to it. Part shoe gaze, part prog punk stretching dissonant jagged guitar lines in all directions, part stream of consciousness rock and all stirred up into a kind of intoxicant fueled by Ellison's self aware kind of scowling vocal performance. I thought of Speedy Ortiz meets Mazzy Star or something like that(?) Very cool, so very engaging and did I mention that Ellison does it all layering the instruments and sounds, producing it just so. Amazing.
