While she formed her Swahili Blonde moniker six years ago, Nicole Turley hasn't fully produced her own work away from outside hands. Along with her husband, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, members of Duran Duran, and Devo, Turley's project produced some incredibly engaging, off-kilter machinations. But now, with her upcoming Deities in Decline EP on the way, we're getting a taste of Turley isolated in her own elements.

The results, as evident on EP cut 'Magdalene', come with a manic shade of Arthur Russell-level eclecticism, mixing world elements and minimalist electronic pulse to Turley's engaging soft vocals. Not simply providing the instrumental play (Laena Geronimo helps on strings), Turley also produced and engineered the record, which she created in her own Los Angeles studio. And the unhinged freedom is fully evident here.

Listen to 'Magdalene' below and look out for Deities in Decline, coming July 21st on Neurotic Yell Records.
