My first thought when I put this record on was “what’s this folky business doing on Digitalis?!”, but as I look into it a little deeper it turns out that Faint Wild Light is in fact the alter-ego of Multiverse Music honcho and Emptyset knob-twiddler James Ginzburg, which makes a bit more sense.
While this is far from what I would expect from this label, it’s clearly the work of someone who knows his way around a soundwave, with his breathy vocals and chiming guitar, joined by all manner of cut-up percussive samples in ‘Speak, Memory’, while in ‘Shattered Stars’ things go all widescreen courtesy of some nice full-sounding piano tinkling and chunkily distorted guitar.
The moods and melodies throughout never stray too far from ‘60s psych-pop, only there’s a clever experimental edge to Ginzburg’s creations which brings to mind bands like The Notwist and Thee More Shallows without ever really sounding like either of those bands. It’s pretty uplifting and I’d put money on it being the most dad-friendly record on Digitalis this year.
