    MJ originally self-released her album, The Channeled Voice, in a hyper-limited run in 1988. Almost 30 years later, the folks at Full Spectrum Records stumbled across a copy of the original cassette in a dusty storage closet and became deeply enamored with its minimalist exotica. They tracked MJ down and managed to convince her to allow them to give her sounds new life.

    Occupying a rarefied aesthetic that falls somewhere between the soundtrack from Terry Gilliam’s classic surrealist film ‘Brazil’ and a particularly adventurous incarnation of Stereolab jamming with Jon Hassell in the Fourth World, this is music that is refreshingly bizarre and without pretense. Constructed using a basic drum machine and processed vocals, the album’s simplistic sonic palette belies the complexity of its content; as MJ's voice is stretched and mutated into alien forms, shuffling Linn Drum rhythms ground the proceedings in our reality.

    The Channeled Voice is composed, performed and produced by MJ Lallo. All cuts are vocal, with some using drum machines. The last song, “Deep Dreams” is the only piece to utilize synthesizers.

    Full Spectrum Records and MJ Lallo are thrilled to bring The Channeled Voice to a new generation of listeners. Enjoy!
