Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – The Kid – OMS 33rd Edition

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – The Kid

Known more for creating avant garde electro soundscapes, often 15 or 20 minutes in length, The Kid is something of unchartered territory for Smith. Indeed her album Sunergy, an epic masterpiece released a little over a year ago, comprised of only two tracks. The Kid feels a lot more like a more rational, stylised record but it’s no less challenging, educated or subtle, Smith seemingly finding more colours and textures in her palette than ever before.

Looking through a microscope at The Kid there is such a huge amount to experience and one can lift a rock to discover whole ecosystems sitting coyly under the surface of Smith’s music. The album is joyous, full of life and living, and seems to contain endless streams of consciousness which both fragment and reassemble with unprecedented poise and dexterity. What Smith has created is that of a childlike imagination, perhaps The Kid’s, with limitless boundaries and endless creativity. It sings and soars and marks a move from composer to contemporary for a genuinely genius creator.
