about

Her first release on Drawing Room Records, the EP, comprised of two smoldering sidelong tracks, titled "Survival" and "Salvation", finds Carter furthering her expansive work in song. The compositions are built with transfixing electric slide-guitar, dancing tambourine, shivering bells and sparse, foreboding effects. "Survival" moves from invocation to drowsy reverie to harrowing possession, punctuated by a major spoken discourse on the complicity of the artist. "Salvation", a striking recitation of the ill-effects of this society's insufficient symbols, moves from lush song-chant to syllable stripped bare, captured in time. The chapbook is equal parts prose poem and critical inquiry, presenting an interrogation of the artist's existential relevance in the 21st century. Reminiscent of work on Carter’s Many Breaths imprint (Trickster Who Is Like God, Imaginee, Texas Modern Exorcism), the Character Study EP represents the first widely available release documenting six years of development within Christina’s unique voice/sound/text aesthetic. Character Study is an essential release in this peerless artist's catalog. (Chapbook is available with vinyl purchase only.)
