  • ELCA gets personal with his latest release on jjjacob's label Katharsis, a revealing portrayal of living with heart disease. "Bradycardia / Pacemakers" is one of the most intriguing pieces on the EP, the halfway point between treatment and healing after his first heart attack. It feels like you're inside his heart, as the erratic, echoed thumps reflect his battle with a low pulse (bradycardia). The way the track transitions from an ambiguous clutter to a clear rhythmic pattern as his pulse levels out is an abstract but compellingly clear portrayal of a harrowing medical experience.
