I wandered into the office yesterday, late and a little hungover and was greeted by some arresting and deeply comforting audio. Scott Morgan's Loscil project was responsible for gently easing my brain back into reality. 'Endless Falls' begins with the sound of rainfall, I just love the chaotic nature of the rhythms of raindrops so it's a winning opening for me… Then Robert Spark's violin playing just utterly melts me. It's total goose pimple stuff. As the album progresses we're in more familiar Loscil territory i.e super high quality, lush ambient harmonics and enveloping textures and drones. At moments it feels a little dubby, and I get the mellow end of Basic Channel kinda vibes… I guess that's the effects rattling around my skull (see 'Dub For Cascadia'). Halfway into the album and I'm really in sonic heaven and beginning to think to myself that this is one the most enjoyable "ambient" listens I've had recently. As the tones and textures develop, they just seem to sing human emotion at me. What I love is how it feels quite intense yet very mellow. The album finishes with the dramatic spoken word performance from Daniel Bejar which fits the sound like a glove. I'd probably usually avoid this type of track but this is absolutely superb and really works a treat. I'm actually reminded of Coil at this point. A fantastic and thoroughly absorbing listen from beginning to end. Highly recommended.
