about

Christina Schneider is back with a futuristic palette of electronic drums, funky bass lines, and quietly hyperactive chord progressions that are sure to impress even the most learned musical millennial. Locate S,1 is the result of a seasoned songwriter cum lo-fi home-recorder delving into the world of mid-fi pop, with results that are pleasantly difficult to define. U.S. Maple’s Todd Rittman could only describe her songs as having “too many chords to be pop, too catchy to be anything else.” Behind deceptively soft vocals, Schneider’s lyrics seem to always circle back to an examination of the disparity between her own will and what people expect of her—ultimately unveiling a hidden well of self-confidence and power. As the final track puts it, “it’s better if they don’t believe in you / then you can show them what you can do.” Be warned, Schneider and her band can do a lot: in fact, Locate S,1 is a technical tour-de-force that extrapolates high-brow jazz harmonics and prog-rock time signatures into a whole menagerie of new forms—all while still passing as pop. During a tour together last autumn, Deerhoof’s John Dieterich wrote, “Such incredible musicians, and the songs are these perfectly constructed little jewels that feel like they’ve been around for thousands of years.” Recorded in Athens, GA with the production and accessory input of Kevin Barnes, plus a wrecking crew of some of the Georgia’s most practiced, each song on Healing Contest really is a gem, layered with facet after facet of shimmering ear candy. A polished statement from a songwriter who is truly in a class of her own.
