Ninja-Tune Titles (Helena Hauff, Leon Vynehall)
Helena Hauff - Qualm
"Qualm has a duality that Hauff enjoys - the German word “Qualm” (kvalm) translates as fumes or smoke, while the English word refers to an uneasy feeling of doubt, worry, or fear, especially about one's own conduct. True to form, the record is unapologetically raw and finds her returning to jamming on her machines - 'trying to create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers.'"
"Nothing Is Still is, at its core, an album dedicated to Vynehall's grandparents. Emigrating from a leafy south east U.K. to New York City in the 1960s, their seven-day journey via boat from Southampton to Brooklyn, and the stories that followed, have only truly come to light upon the passing of his grandfather four years ago."
