Behind The Pale by William Ryan Fritch

Clanging dark-hued composer William Ryan Fritch wrote this album around the time he was expecting his first daughter so the album naturally has the air of worried expectancy. This is a powerful music that will appeal to fans of Swans, Godspeed and Jon Mueller the latter of which Fritch collaborated on his similarly scary 'Tongues' album.

Hey, everybody, it’s Fritchy time! So yeah, I’m excited but any more than two exclamation marks would’ve been excessive. So we come to another in a long line of tortuous, labyrinthine, circuitous routes taken by that William Ryan Fritch for the most rustic, monolithic touchstones of post-modernist, bookish labels, Lost Tribe Sound. With the packaging that we love so much. You might want to clear some space on your shelves for this one, folks. It's Beyond The Pale.

This one features songs. Lots of songs, with lyrics and crooning. But, for ‘crooning’, see lovely soft and harmonious singing. And plenty of delicate woodwind passages. With luscious plucked strings -- guitars, harps, violins (also bowed) etc -- soft beds of woozy electronics. In fact it’s a magnificent beast of a record, full to the brim with a sort of modern, electroacoustic, soulfully gothic folk with classical flourishes. It’s reminding me of Fleet Foxes; it has the same kind of intensity and attention to detail. Modern, intricate, lush -- put that on your three-word cover quote.
