For Chicago-based musician Sarah Jane Quillin, Desert Liminal is a vehicle for experimental songwriting that seeks to marry elements of narrative poetry, melodic dream pop, shoegaze textures, and noise. A first listen of Glass Fate, Desert Liminal’s first release on Whited Sepulchre Records, reveals an astute ear for creating warm, engaging art-pop that entwines Quillin’s eliding delivery around smart hooks and introspective, bordering on melancholy, melodies. The further these songs move from the source they begin slipping into headier terrain creating neck-craning audio fields and looped voice that recall Tony Conrad at his most accessible and Haley Fohr’s experimentations with voice and breath. These sounds cohabitate in the liminal space where meaning and reference slowly fade into Jungian archetype and back again in this solid, reality-affirming songwriting.
