Limited clear colored vinyl LP pressing. Renowned avant-garde artist Phew returns to Mute for the album, New Decade. Working within the medium of voice and analog electronics, New Decade's six tracks define Phew as a master of her craft - fusing her ghostly vocals with intense droning textures and clamorous guitar feedback. New Decade is a stark and haunted album, populated by voices that intone empty pleasantries in English and Japanese or manifest as wordless shrieks and groans, against a backdrop of fractured, dubbed-out electronics. Phew explains that there's a loose concept running through the album, relating to the perception of time: "During the '80s, and up until the '90s, things progressed along a line from past to present to future, but I think that's changed, especially since the start of the 21st century. Personally speaking, I've stopped being able to see a future that extends from the present."
