Aonghus Reidy AKA Ocean Floor returns after the sublime 4 Shadows record for Aphelion Edition with a much longer single piece, spread over 2 sides of 180gm vinyl. Named The World of Rain, Reidy conjures a similar sound as on his previous effort, utilising analogue synth to create a bubbling, liquid piece full of languorous melancholy. Side 1 is more brooding, playing with a long, slow sliding melody, with a hint of brooding menace teasing in and out of malice and melancholy, which eventually builds to a satisfying yet fatalistic crescendo. This long first side may take more than a few listens to appreciate its subtle beauty. Ponderous and infinitely sombre, Side 2 instantly hits you out the gate with its funereal underwater piano and organ sound, fading out. All in all, a record that deserves repeated, thoughtful listening.
