Caroline Polachek: Desire, I Want to Turn Into You [Perpetual Novice]

Desire, I Want to Turn Into You, Caroline Polachek’s follow-up to 2019’s Pang is her definitive statement as a solo artist, adding puckish details and far-flung musical cues—including bagpipes on “Blood and Butter”—to her experimental pop. Her oddly addictive anthem “Bunny Is a Rider” features, as do many other post-Pang singles. On “Fly to You,” the former Chairlift singer brings along Grimes and Dido for the ride; elsewhere, the sound palette calls to mind flamenco, trip-hop, and trance. The cumulative effect, writes Cat Zhang in her review, is “like staring up at a giant fresco, the detail so exquisite you can’t decide where to rest your eyes first.”
