Fragments And Shards
It’s funny now for me to look back on Rose Elinor Dougall’s time in the Pipettes because that perky, hyper-assertive music is so far from where she’s gone as a solo artist. As she’s moved along, Dougall’s aesthetic has become increasingly dreamy and ethereal – not to the point of shoegazer-ish abstraction, but with this single she’s at least approaching the spacey formalism of late period Stereolab. “Strange Warnings” doesn’t have that sort of antiseptic, aloof quality though – Dougall puts a lot of heart into her vocals, even if in context she comes off as very shy and the music seems extraordinarily introverted.
