Lady you should know about: The Seven Fields of Aphelion

May 16, 2010

Tobacco and Father Hummingbird often receive most of the credit for Black Moth Super Rainbow’s unique brand of creepy, psychedelic pop, but The Seven Fields of Aphelion (a.k.a. Maux Boyle) is the lady behind all those crazy synth sounds. If you’ve ever seen BMSR or Tobacco live, you probably recognize her as the tiny figure hunched over a laptop and a pile of vintage synthsizers.

Also an accomplished photographer (she specializes in multiple-exposure 35mm prints that combine industrial images with natural ones), The Seven Fields of Aphelion released her debut solo LP, Periphery, on Graveface back in February. It’s more ethereal than BMSR, as the schizophrenic glitchiness and hip hop elements have been stripped away and replaced with haunting, magical soundscapes that are harmonious with her visual work.

Our friends at Now Like Photographs, Radio K’s epic instrumental show, featured Periphery as their record of the week . Listen to The Seven Fields of Aphelion’s music here and check out her photography here.
