Over a few years' time, Jane Weaver released two albums and an EP that redefined her as a psychedelic wizard who used electronics, her expressive voice, and burgeoning production skills to cast a dark and entrancing spell. Loops in the Secret Society is a collection that reworks tracks from 2015's The Silver Globe and 2017's Modern Kosmology albums, as well as 2017's Architect EP, along with quite a few ambient interludes made up of synthy squiggles, atmospheric diversions, and moody electronic wanderings that fit in between like tiny, gleaming gems. It also sneaks in a track -- "Majik Milk" -- from her 2011 album Watchbird Alluminate.
There is no escape from time for human beings, I think to myself as I walk into the pitch-black emptiness of Olafur Eliasson's installation Your Black Horizon. We can only leave a trail, an echoing in the ether, moments of transcendence fossilised in art. A stream of LED light stretched around the black walls pierces my retina, changing through the colours of the sky during a one-day cycle.
