Mary Cassidy and Jon Lawless :: "Make It Do"

Low-end synth stabs menace below Mary Cassidy's smoldering vocal at the outset of latest collaboration with Jon Lawless, "Make It Do". Glittering loops enter into the conversation, effecting the image of slow-motion carbonation, bubbles rising to the surface of an arrangement built for languid jamming. Like so many of Lawless' contraptions, the vocals run at each other in figure-eights, or maybe it's a double helix, overlapping and daring each other in a slow-speed game of chicken, two pairs of headlights aimed at each other on the road that threaten destruction but never collide.
