The prolific American electronica composer follows up her 2016 breakthrough album Ears with her third LP in as many years. The Kid chronicles four defining cognitive and emotional stages of the human lifespan across four sides of a double LP: Side 1 takes us through the confused astonishment of a newborn unaware of itself existing in an unwitting nirvana; Side 2 focuses on the vital but under reported moment in early youth when we cross the threshold into self awareness; Side 3 emphasises a feeling of being confirmed enough in one’s own identity to begin giving back to the formative forces of one’s upbringing; and finally Side 4 represents a return to pure being the kind of wisdom and peace that eludes most of us until the autumn of life. This is as thoughtful as electronica music can get and Smith (who cites naturalist Sir David Attenborough as a contemporary muse) creates an array of fluid soundscapes with the use of several different synthesizers. For the thoughtful.
