about

This is the first ever full digital release for the classic 4th Neotropic album – a landmark in the evolution of her sound.

"White Rabbits showcases an artist at the top of her form" (Pitchfork)

For this first post-Ninja Tune LP, Riz Maslen travelled to Minneapolis to work with some of its best underground indie musicians. Blending electronica and live instrumentation into a highly evocative, cinematic mix, White Rabbits is both a great ensemble piece and an extraordinary, intimately personal statement.

"A shimmering, intoxicating record" (Metro Pop)

"There's not a single weak moment here. Brilliant, evocative stuff" (In The Mix)

Functioning as both producer and a kind of performing musical director, White Rabbits draws on Maslen's multi-instrumentalist skills across flute, guitar, bass, drums, percussion and keyboards, as well as her expertise in the studio. Initially recording with collaborators including JG Everest, Madigan Shive and Ollo, the tapes were brought back to London to be manipulated and reconstructed into the organic, almost post-rock soundscapes that are the final tracks.

"Exceptional" (XLR8R)

The result is an album that carves its own space somewhere between electronica, post-rock, folk and ambient. Freeform, fluid and experimental over a full 61 minutes 30 seconds, this is not an album to get to grips with on first listen, but one from which repeated listens reveal more and more.

"Undoubtedly the strongest work thus far under the moniker of Neotropic" (Igloo)

As we begin to fill in more of the gaps in Riz Maslen's online discography, our hope is that the development of her unique and important aesthetic will be more easily traceable through what is an extraordinary (and still growing) body of work.

"For all intents and purposes, Maslen has become the female equivalent of Brian Eno" (IGN)

"Astounding" (Chord)

Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we called it a day
Cause every time I hear your voice now
Just makes me want to turn away

Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we called it day
Cause every time I hear your voice now
Makes me want to turn away

Oh you’re doing my head in
Can’t we just get along?
Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we said goodbye

Ooh
