The follow-up to 2012's Black Prince Fury EP, and 2013's Jet Black Raider EP, Scottish composer Anna Meredith's debut full length Varmints is released via Moshi Moshi. The record is called Varmints because these songs represent ideas she could not shake off, a welcome infestation of "musical pests." Varmints is grand in its own way, a record of unusual scope and power, perfectly blending Meredith's love of big brush strokes with her eye for the devastating detail. Meredith manages to cloak high-minded experimentalism in playful pop sensibilty. For fans of Holly Herndon, Kate Bush, Arthur Russell and Modern Classical.
