"You are, and will always be, your depression," intones a computer-synthesized voice on Joni Void's song "Deep Impression." It's the exact opposite of what you'll hear in therapy, where the goal, more or less, is to separate what you feel and what you are, so that you might more easily bear the former. But there is value, and humor, in naming the wrong thing, the deep and abiding fear, especially when you force a robot to speak it. Mise En Abyme, the second album Jean Cousin has released as Joni Void, liquefies many of the jagged edges jutting up from 2017's Selfless.
