9/10 Phil 20 November 2008
Library Tapes is back with his fourth album proper (I think.... I lose count sometimes) on Make Mine Music. The 3 previous albums on Kning Disk and Resonant have all gone now. Boo hoo. Hey I only caught on when I got lost in amidst his 2nd album on Resonant and ended up blagging a CDR of the 1st album from the Resonant folks as the debut had sold out at the time. Lovely it is too. So here's is brand new thing called A Summer Beneath The Trees. This one features Danny Norbury on cello and man of the moment (more like boy as he's only about 10) Peter Broderick playing loads of different things. If you're familiar with previous Library Tapes albums then this one will come as no surprise. It's lovely from the off and it continues down lovely street until it finishes and leaves you an emotional wreck on the curled up to a fetal ball in your garden. And you'll wonder how you got there too. Yes it's a moving melancholic album filled with misery, beauty. hope and joy all at the same time. I always find the strings and piano combo a moving one. It's by far my favourite sort of classical music as it just sounds so damned beatiful yet miserable at the same time. The piano at times sounds a bit like Harold Budd. Slow repetitive mantras which sound all distant like the microphone was in a different room. As ever lurking in the background are some weird electronic noises which creep around sinisterly behind the gorgeous instrumentation. Obvious comparisons to Sylvain Chauveau, Yann Tiersen and Max Richter still stand and if you fancy something a bit on the neo classical side this week then I totally rate this. Well lovely!! Phil x
