Tasty!

SFTG delivers yet again! Several tracks on this album seem a bit brighter and more percussive than their past work -not as brooding or emotive as Luminal, but still deliciously chilled, with hints of familiar SFTG instrumentation and loop styles. One thing that drives me bonkers about a lot of today's chill grooves is repetition and monotony, but Brightwhitelight manages to avoid both with admirable dexterity. The layering is deliberate, and the textures satisfyingly complementary. For example, the muted bass and digital accents on "Eclipse" are well paired -a real treat in a pair of professional headphones. Recordings like this make me glad I decided to upgrade my library to 256Kbps AAC files. If you like quality chill grooves and Jimmy Edgar-esque audio fidelity (when such a thing was still a novelty), buy with confidence!

One of SFTG's better offerings.

With Brightwhitelight, SFTG moves on to yet another new sound. After the mostly downtempo High Rising, SFTG created more of a foot-tapping, upbeat album. Not the kind of thing to dance to, but still more uptempo and electronic than their previous efforts. It's also one of their more unified albums, their most unified since Mosaic.

"Eclipse On 5th" is very subtle and the most downtempo on here, and probably would've made a better opener than "The Gift". "Nightshift" is dark and mysterious, but not so much as to make you feel uncomfortable. "Under The Sun" is almost a little reggae-ish, but not as bouncy as, say, "Palmprint" from High Rising. "Sweet Confusion" is their most uptempo and danceable track to date; I can almost even headbang to it a little. "Mesh" makes for a melodic and cool closing to the album.

Like Kin, Mosaic, and Luminal before it, every song on Brightwhitelight is worth your while. It's not a very good indication on their usual sound and thus not a great introduction to SFTG, for that I would recommend Kin or Mosaic, but for fans of chillout or just electronic in general, this is an excellent album. Now, all they need is more interesting album artwork...
