statuesque vancouverite sally dige is emblematic of a restless spirit
flitting in and out of view, an apparition just out of reach.
on "forget me"the idea of self is brought into focus then blurred as
dige intones a haunted hymn to self-erasing. over an emotionally
wrought 4 mins, post-punk bass lines and moody synth-leads edge the
author into willed obscurity fr.om view. on the edges of the song are
hints at a fractured, fragile character: "i'd rather go alone / and not
be missed by anyone." is it auto-biographical? or a character impeccably
acted? on the other side "losing you" proves that sally dige never
gives too much away. here she wears the mask of a jaded lover watching
the physical and moral collapse of someone once loved, confronted with
something unrecognisable. melding an italo disco skeleton with dark
analogue synths, in many ways the music is similarly an eroded form once
recognised, now perverted into a propulsive, strange new language.
