"Chubby Wolf was the moniker used by the late Dani Baquet-Long of Celer for her subdued world of sound. With the help of Dani's husband and Celer's other half, Will Long, the final Chubby Wolf recordings are finally seeing the light of day posthumously. Turkey Decoy represents some of her most accessible work. "Cantankerous Baby" opens the set with cybernetic clouds - it's like endlessly floating through an unknown haze built around processed vocals and sample-ridden electric guitar. As you continue dreaming through the morose romanticism of pieces like "Prescient Inspiration," there's an understated sensuality that weaves its way into the music. "If There's An Elephant in the Room" pulls back the curtain and reveals a breathless aftermath punctuated by distant piano chords and sprawling drones. Each swell of Baquet-Long's voice makes you want to avert your eyes, unsure if it's something you're supposed to see." (label info)
