Eleanor Logan is Happy New Year, a one-woman band working in the realm of atmospheric noise pop. Everything here is performed at a very slow tempo with what apparently are programmed drums keeping mesmerizing rhythms.  This isn’t exactly trance music but it’s easy for the listener to float off to songs like “Movies” while Logan’s voice navigates the ether, seemingly coming through from some other dimension. Synths sizzle here and there as chimes and bells tinkle, everything adding to an otherworldly aura where you really don’t need to pay attention to what Logan is singing about to enjoy the dreamy ride.

Grade: B
