- In A Lonely Place by Tape Loop Orchestra
9/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 09 January 2013
Fluid Audio always go to great lengths to ensure their vinyl packages are as lush and deluxe as possible and this one is no exception, coming in a thick card gatefold sleeve with all manner of posters, prints, a CD, download code, and even a little sachet of scent to keep it fragrant. What more could you possibly ask for?
As you’d probably imagine from an LP comprised of three tracks titled ‘I Was Born When She Kissed Me’, ‘I Died When She Left Me’ and ‘I Lived A Few Weeks While She Loved Me’ (three lines from Humphrey Bogart’s 1950 classic of the same name), this isn’t the cheeriest album you’ll hear all year, and as you’d probably imagine from someone making music under the moniker Tape Loop Orchestra, this is a slow drifting chunk of nostalgic blurred audio which is awash with hiss, crackle and decay over mournful looped melodies.
Things get more uneasy as the album progresses, although it develops to more of an aching hauntedelic Deathprod-esque sadness than anything chaotic or difficult. It’s a patient but tranquil listen which will tickle your onions if you’re a fan of William Basinski, The Caretaker and the type of warm, high quality ambience you’d expect from labels like Infraction. An artefact of unquestionable quality, and knowing this label it won’t be available for particularly long.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
