エストニアの魔女系アンビエント作家Man Reiによる2020年6月リリースの150部限定カセット。全てがぼんやりとしており、独特の瞑想感があります。全9曲を収録。

Cusp is a set of witchy lullabies from Estonian experimental recorder Man Rei, aka Kristin Reiman. Her work evokes the sleep that never quite arrives and dreams disturbed by waking worries, flowing between walls of hazy sounds and punches of morphed and pitch-shifted vocals. Finished in 2019, Cusp explores the postmodern fatigue from the overdrive of expected productivity. With most non-vocal sounds built out of urban field recordings, it offers a distinctive meditation on tiredness, exhaustion, and transition.

The first half of the album is more flowing and varied, opening with the slow ritual strains of "Witchcraft and Stitchery" followed by the even more cryptic "The Queer That Is The Night" and "Same Shirt." By contrast, on the second half tracks like "Feverish,"  "Itch Itch," and "Eardrum" look for reasons behind the fatigue, accompanied by sharper instrumentals and a crisper vocalization. Everything is entangled in a fog of frequencies with no clear division between high and low. There is very little percussion, with most rhythms created by repeating samples.
