Singer / songwriter Mackenzie Scott, better known as Torres, releases her follow-up to 2013's self-titled debut. The nine-track offering is titled 'Sprinter' and is released via Partisan. It was produced by Rob Ellis (known for his work with PJ Harvey), with a backing band featuring Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley and PJ Harvey's bassist Ian Oliver. Torres knows the darkness. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter otherwise known as Mackenzie Scott waits until anything - an idea, an emotion, a memory - gnaws at her, tearing at her fingers and throat until she releases it in song. Her husky voice strains against its human biological constraints like a wild-eyed horse, whispering desperately "Don't give up on me just yet" on one end and yowling about jealousy with unnerving intensity on the other. Following her self-titled debut in 2013, Torres pushes herself to even noisier extremes on 'Sprinter', a punishing self-examination of epic spiritual and musical proportions.
