Despite a relative dearth of releases, San Francisco's Group Rhoda (actually a solo project from singer and analog synth fetishist Mara) has already made waves, most notably with a curious remix of the Asphodells, and 2012 debut album Out of Time - Out of Touch. This sophomore set should increase the publicity-shy musician's standing considerably. Woozy, a little psyehcedelic, slightly tropical, extremely stylish and more often than not unconventionally beautiful, 12th House offers a sun-drenched take on coldwave and synthwave that's rarely less than thrilling. It frequently flits between warm and gorgeous ("Coral Castle"), and stargazing darkness ("Space Race"). Throughout, Mara remains an air of enigmatic distance.
