- Nostalgia by Marsen Jules
1 review. Write a review for us »
You'd be forgiven for thinking that nostalgia makes the world go round. Whether it's Pulp, Kingmaker or whoever reforming or Washed Out et al sounding like a Hall and Oates B side from '85 we can't stop revelling in the past. Thankfully, this title is something of a misnomer and if it's retro for anything it's harking back to the sound accompanying be-robed monks as they drift down dimly lit hallways circa 1897. On this, only his second album, Jules provides the listener with a series of beautiful blissed out drones shot through with the kind of late light melancholy that is perfect for whiling away the hours by candlelight on a chilly, windy night. If that description is a load of old cobblers try this: its like Gas with the beats removed and minus the feeling you are sitting in the far reaches of a dance festival while dub techno blasts out of a faraway tent. Comparisons could be made to Deaf Centre, Stars of the Lid and Rafael Anton Isarri. Chilling, heartbreaking ambient, neo-classical bliss. Recommended.
