Slow Burning Lights

by Blue Sky Black Death

This is a hauntingly beautiful album from the production team Blue Sky Black Death. On this album, they are joined by vocalist Yes Alexander, who's quiet, spaced out voice matches their minimal production perfectly.

This album is highly reminiscent of Portishead, but without the sense of dissonance or despair that is often present in their music.

This is an unexpected turn from producers who are best known for their work in hip-hop, with Wu-Tang affiliates, no less, but it's a welcome change of pace. They've released a number of albums in the last two years, and I hope that their output keeps up both in terms of quality and quantity.
