From the music to the packaging, Decays by Francis M. Gri reflects decay in a number of ways. The music goes in cycles, building and falling, growing and decaying - beautiful sounds smothering less beautiful sounds and vice versa. The packaging shows moral decay in one version being way OTT, whilst another version is packaged to show physical decay. Only 50 copies of each on Time Released Sound.

Another thing on Time Released Sound that is uniquely packaged with love and care and guaranteed not to fit snugly into your CD collection. Musically it almost seems like a parallel piece to the Yellow 6 album also from this week as it paints a bleak wintery picture perfect for this time of year. Like much of the Yellow6 albums the haunted atmospheres on opener 'Numb' bring to mind an instrumental take of the chilly sparseness of early Low though here voice pads are added for some ethereal cushion. Elsewhere the music is more distracted and dislocated, the loose soundscapes taking in synths, found sounds and field recordings which results in an almost new age feel on 'Anxiety' before harsh noise is introduced to break up the beauty.
The album is a mixture of synthetic and organic sounds which combine to create an elegant thoughtful work.
