Album Review

Rafael Anton Irisarri’s first album as the Sight Below was titled after a My Bloody Valentine EP. Two of its songs happened to share titles with songs by the Verve and Ride. The connection between It All Falls Apart and shoegaze runs deeper: Simon Scott, who played drums in the Charlottes and Slowdive, provides “guitars, treatments, and electronics” on three songs, co-writing and co-producing two of them with the Pacific Northwest producer. Not merely another album of impeccably made ambient thump-and-drone, It All Falls Apart improves upon the exceptional debut in that it is more evocative and less insular, with a sense of openness that is far more comforting than alienating. Only two songs — back to back, in the middle of the sequence — carry that muffled Gas-eous pulse-rhythm heard on Glider, and even those are elegantly downcast, graced with layers of deceptively contrasting guitar-generated drones that can create states of anxious bliss and becalmed terror (to such an affecting extent that Irisarri could have justifiably swiped the title of the Verve's first album, A Storm in Heaven). A slow-motion, almost motionless, rendering of Joy Division's “New Dawn Fades,” featuring pitched-down-sounding vocals from Jesy Fortino (Tiny Vipers), resembles a Velvet Underground & Nico ballad heard through wind-tunnel squall. “A change of speed, a change of style” takes on a literal meaning here.

well done!

Listened to this for three days soaking it in and it's great follow up to Glider.

blew my mind as delicately as possible

TSB has done it again...everything he's put out thus far is an instant classic to me...really love the collaboration with Simon Scott on this one, I can't wait for what they do in the future...if you like music of an ambient/shoegaze/electronic variety like Gas/Loscil, you will absolutely love this...everyone should have something like this in their music collection...

like a bath

wonderfull post-trip come down music. For the peak? Well, if you like this try The Art Of Dying Alone by bvdub... for the peak.

An alias of reclusive Seattle, WA-based producer Rafael Anton Irisarri, the Sight Below released Glider — a dark ambient techno album seemingly inspired by shoegaze and Wolfgang Voigt in roughly equal measure, featuring layer upon layer of processed guitar — on the Ann Arbor, MI, label Ghostly International in November 2008. The set was later taken on the road, with performances at Detroit's Movement Festival, MUTEK, and Sónar; there were other live dates at venues beside Lusine. Former...
