The ambient alias of Local Action affiliate Yamaneko, this release sees Talbot Fade offer an hour-long homage to motherhood through soundscaping both earthy and astral. Named after an installation by artist Meiro Koizumi detailing a son grieving for his mother, My Voice Would Reach You is still as a landscape painting -- and yet never far from total collapse. The descendent chaos of the record is in turns beautiful and nightmarish, much like the From Software video games that influenced it.

9/10 Ant Staff review, 31 October 2017

The third album from Talbot Fade (Yamaneko, Local Action) is an intensely personal, cathartic sonic articulation of his emotions following the loss of his mother. Having read that backstory and listening to opening track ‘My Voice Would Reach You’, I myself became overwhelmed with his sense of grief to the point the music literally froze me with chills and I started welling up.

There’s a powerful sense of communication between this life and the next - as though this music were the language of the human spirit crossing between astral planes. Any adjectives thrown at ambient music would trivialise just how profoundly moving this album is. It is truly heartbreaking, and yet a sense of acceptance and healing is present. It’s possibly a cliché to suggest that this tape finds beauty in darkness but it really does. Ambient music is everywhere at present, but it’s rare to hear it executed in such a remarkably touching way. I get a real sense that he’s channelling his mother - the sounds just emit this majestic sense of unconditional love, the kind that comes from the beautiful women that give us life.
