Liminal Lines is proud to feature the phenomenal young poet Alicia Salvadeo. In this episode, Alicia reads from her newest project, Err to Narrow–a title both referring to the Verrazano tidal strait connecting the Upper and Lower Bays of New York, and an anagram for war on terror–Alicia revisits the ambiguities of sex, media culture, and 9/11 as experienced by the generation barely come of age in the early years of the new millennium. Alicia also reads form another small project, some of which will be featured in Softblow Poetry Journal’s forthcoming November issue.

Purity Ring is an excellent example of a band that used the internet to its advantage: they’ve been releasing mp3s from this album since January 2011 with ‘Ungirthed,’ and ever since then have gained a cult following that led to them nailing a spot in the 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival weeks before their debut album was even released. But does Shrines live up to the hype? Well, yeah; basically half the album has already been released as mp3s for scrutiny, and the rest of the album is just as good. Described as producing “lullabies for the club,” Purity Ring explores the genre of future pop, all lush synths that, layered, create haunting pop songs that are only enhanced by singer Megan James’s childlike and feminine voice. The songs can appear to be rather simple throughout the album, but taking a closer look reveals an album that is both emotional and interesting. It’s clear that great thought was put into creating the beats, which combine dreamy synths and hip-hop beats, which, when layered with the surprisingly dark lyrics (“Cut open my sternum and pull my little ribs around you” on ‘Fineshrine’), create an explicitly well-thought out album.
