TALsounds is the solo project of Chicago-based Lebanese-American electronic artist Natalie Chami. She released a new album titled Acquiesce which is out now via NNA Tapes. According to the press release, Recorded at home as improvised sessions, the album is a fluid extrapolation of her thoughts, worries, and stresses, later trimmed down and reformatted into songs.
Chami treats her voice like an instrument that breathes calm into interwoven electronic parts, often leaning into vowels instead of phrases, particularly the tall, forward sound of “i” words like “time,” “find,” and “decide.” It was performed entirely by Chami and produced by Cooper Crain (Bitchin’ Bajas, Cave).
