Copping its style somewhat from von Trier's ethos of semi-guerrilla filmmaking, Selmasongs has both thirst and vengeance. French film icon Catherine Deneuve is given collaborative credit on the percussive/rhythmic "Cvalda," and the appropriately titled "Scattershot" mixes jungle bursts with orchestral swells for a truly mesmerizing track. That Bjork is willing to step aside and let the songs play out naturally (whether that includes using footsteps as a timekeeper on one cut or opening the EP with an "Overture" that's as suitably introductory as it is thematically necessary) is a credit to her ever-increasing progress as an artist. Selmasongs does stand on its own, particularly as a semi-sequel to the lovely Homogenic. The songs, all produced or co-produced by Bjork, tread across lush soundscapes populated by buzzing bits of elegance. "I've Seen It All," a brittle duet with Radiohead's Thom Yorke, moves gracefully between its points, and the closing "New World" builds to a stirring classical climax. They invoke visions of beauty, peculiarity, and disturbance, even without the benefit of the film itself unspooling in front of you.
