- As A Hovering Insect Mass Breaks Your Fall by James Brewster
Here we have the latest release on Make Mine Music from an ex-Bristolian now living in Malmo, Sweden. Its probably also the only release on that label that features contributions from an Iranian puppet artist. I may be wrong. The album is a grab bag of ideas and styles from the red herring of opener 'Vel Kvonen' where Men Daimlers vocals alarm on first listen (reminiscent of Rhenallt H Rowlands you'll either love them or hate them) over a beautiful funeral organ fugue. The same melody crops up on the following track 'Vraikan Sundan' looping vocals over Gareth S Brown style music box melodies into infinity. 'Crumbling Spires' has chopped up drums and Neil Tennant echoing spoken word vocals whilst reversed ethnic female vocals take over before the whole thing develops into a layered acoustic lament. The standout track is the sprawling 'Wingbeat Fission' featuring Gravenhurst man Nick Talbot. It sounds quite identical to Epic 45 with pretty guitars and Talbot's fey, layered vocals but just when you think you've got it figured there's an abrupt left turn into some kind of low end acid house. Again its relying on reversed vocals as Talbot gets twisted and turned. The concluding 'Your Life Was But a Trick of the Light' is probably the most straightforward thing on here and very pretty but way too short to make a full impact. Still, this is a brave, unconventional album that will appeal to fans of early 4AD, Dead Can Dance, Piano Magic and the Make Mine Music roster. Only available from us at the moment.
