"Something is looming on the horizon, a flickering presence, a sparkle in the twilight, hardly visible at first, then slowly taking shape and finally coming into view: "I will depart/I see, I will, I won't go far," Stefanie Boehm (Couch) sings on "Sirens", one of 10 tracks Ms. John Soda have recorded for "Loom", their first album in eight years - and it's true: It's a return that often feels like yet another departure, like it's time to say farewell once again, one last hug and off it goes into the valley, where life is already waiting. A lot has changed since Ms. John Soda released the first 7" back in 1998, since Micha Acher (The Notwist et al) joined Stefanie Boehm and completed the creative nucleus of this band around the turn of the millennium; day-to-day life indeed feels different some 16 years later, but the basic chemistry, the intricate balance of electronic and analog molecules that orbit this nucleus - and thus, the resulting mood and vibe -, they're still recognizable, still undeniably Ms. John Soda."
