A Mythology of Circles

Fantastic, Based on 2 Critics

Based on rating 4.5

It's a safe bet that Faten Kanaan is well read. Her new record is rife with poetic references to folklore, science, nature and fate. Titles allude to Mesopotamian goddesses, the resurrection of phoenixes, astrological constellations, rivers, winds and godlike planets. She's clearly spent an impressive length of time reading about European history and traditions.

The Quietus
Opinion: Excellent

As we head into what feels like an especially long and bitter winter, Faten Kanaan's fourth LP offers an eerie rumination on the cycles of nature. A Mythology Of Circles isn't a radical reinvention for the Brooklyn-based composer, but it is a significant leap forward in her craft. The palette is much the same as on previous albums - elegantly-played synthesizer parts, rumbling bass and beautiful, brittle melodies - but there's a stronger sense of cohesion here, of a cryptic narrative teased throughout the tracks.
