Laurel Halo, a/k/a King Felix, never loses sight of her music’s potential to challenge and surprise. Her futuristic art-pop is a destabilizing exploration, its shifting expert electronics alternately lush and harsh, her own voice sometimes humanly vulnerable, sometimes processed to an alien degree. Quarantine, her 2012 full-length, fits right in on the ever-more-interesting former avant-dubstep label Hyperdub. Plus electronic-pop from Telepathe and minimal wave from Xeno & Oaklander.
