I’ve heard this band before, but not for a while. I remember back in the dark days of ‘06 or ‘07 a friend of mine had a 3” CD of theirs which we’d listen to quite a lot; wistful instrumental stuff which fit comfortably into the second-wave-of-UK-post-rock bracket along with the likes of Yndi Halda or Souvaris.

Time passes, though, and people grow up. Fuzzy Lights have released two full-length albums since those days and honed their sound to a beautifully measured mixture of pastoral folk, neoclassical-tinged dreampop and the occasional blast of good old-fashioned post-rocky noise for good measure. The prominence of the violin in these noisier passages keeps making me think of the Dirty Three, which can’t be a bad thing in my book, but a large portion of the album is preoccupied with lovely fragile vocal-led folkiness with twinkly acoustic guitar and gentle singing sometimes reminiscent of Karen Elson or Vashti Bunyan if they’d had a helping hand from Ennio Morricone. Later in the album a boy starts singing too who sounds a bit like Chris from Hood. It takes its time and doesn’t care if you don’t know how to categorise it, but if post-post-rock is your bag this is a record that’s worth unhooking the phone, dimming the lights, sparking a doob and giving a proper listen to.
