Album Review

Far removed from their two other projects — Halou and Invisible Ballet — the Cosebooms, singer Rebecca and producer programmer Ryan, now embark upon a sonic journey into slumberland. As fans have come to expect from this pair, the music within Beneath Trembling Lanterns defies easy categorization; ambient, chill, soundscape — a guarded yes to all three — but even together those terms don't begin to describe this set. Hazy is a better description, evoking an aural light-blue sky streaked with wisps of clouds, forever shimmering and shifting patterns, with occasional disconcerting, darker gray ribbons of thunderclouds sliding through in the distance. This captures the fragmented bits that comprise the rhythms, as well as the samples, sounds, and synths that swirl overhead, all of which almost magically coalesce into the loosely structured pieces, like an impressionist's painting. The synth melodies variously chime; tinkle like music boxes; sweep up majestically; or gently ring, quiver, or froth forth in orchestral glory. There's a richness to the tones, but no matter how dense the sounds become, there's a delightful sense of empty spaces, like standing in a flower-carpeted meadow surrounded by trees. And in the center lies Rebecca, dreamily staring up at the light pouring down, weaving delicate melodies like dandelion chains through Ryan's intricate backings. On "Baby Beating Heart" she sounds wide awake, almost belting out the lyrics, but on "Soft Breasts and Ice Cream" she tenderly caresses the melody like a sleeping baby. But whether delivering sweet lullabies or more soulful offerings, she always sounds a million miles away, her beautiful vocals making even lines like "26 pounds of cow muck" sound exquisite. After the emotive dance-driven ecstasies of Halou and Invisible Ballet, the pair deserved some quiet time, and with Lanterns they've offered up a sublime set as an antidote.

Customer Reviews

Beneath Trembling Lanterns

Star-dusted subtlety, purring pins and needles and side-swept soundscapes enhabit a lyrical topography both haunted and soft. A jewel. The whole package is well worth it, but these tracks are particularly delicious: Hollywood Ending, Soft Breasts and Ice Cream, Arrythmia, Little Dust Wing.

Minimal side project from Halou

r/r coseboom have been an absolute blessing in the seemingly endless stream of mediocrity that exists in music today. never have i waited in such anticipation for another release and 'beneathe trembling lantarns' doesn't disappoint. here we have a stripped-down version of the band that only proves that it doesn't take studio tricks to make some interesting electronic music. i believe that r/r coseboom will [someday] be remembered amongst pioneers like brian eno, john cage, and kraftwerk. standout songs include the original version of 'hollywood ending' (which has been released on halou's sawtooth ep) and 'soft breasts and ice cream'.
