"Even my subconscious is self-conscious," Okay Kaya sings on "Inside Of A Plum", giving us a sense of the mental state she entered while making "SAP", an album she wrote, performed, engineered, and produced alone, sometimes spending weeks at a time without social interaction.
This is a concept album about consciousness in which Okay Kaya focuses her trademark combination of abstraction and wit on what happens to her mind unaccompanied, on her tendency to feel less like a human and more like the sticky secretion of a tree. Okay Kaya's investigations of mind-body come along with sexy dance beats, unpredictable interlocking synths, delicate soft guitars, and close-to-the-mike R&B whispering. But Kaya likes her falsettos cracking and her soul-inspired hooks careening wildly, a beautiful chaos that somehow fits together. Most songs on the album unfold with guest performances from artists as varied as deem spencer, Taja Cheek of L'Rain, and Adam Green of The Moldy Peaches.
Just as the recording process began with isolation and ended with friends, "SAP" starts with the internal and leads outside to romance, to lovers who serve as funhouse mirrors, reflecting Kaya back to herself from different angles.
