8/10 Maggie 18 November 2006
Now I got the debut album by The Shadow Orchestra which has been 2 years in the making. I'm reading composer Chris Bang's press release here, and it says its a "sumptuous mix of electronica, folk, jazz and acoustic instrumentation." Its sounding very electronic to me and not like an orchestra at all. He's citing his influences as Four Tet and Aphex which is definitely prevalent and at the forefront of the sound. If you could wipe these two out of existence it would be outstanding but he's walking in big shadows. I'm listening to this as I write this and now he's gone and gone all Psapp on me. Delicate chiming, subtle hooks and melodies. Anyway it's a nice job and is so full of ideas (2 years full) that its hard to cover it in a soundbite. Phil says its like the music to a recent Bjork album. Track 4 entitled Creaking and Bowing is a great track as is track 3 Plucking and Bowing which sounds like a dream night out for the boys in this office. Chris Bangs..... good lad.
