Delicate Noise returns with their second CD - Filmezza...
...an honest, optimistic and weighted electronica record. The album unfolds like the telling of a dream - warm and sentimental songs wash in and out with lullaby-like melodies, augmented with disembodied voices of children playing. 'Butterfly Envy' acknowledges a Boards of Canada influence with a haunting and emotional sound evoking an image of old home movies. 'Roundlake Beach' continues the theme while adding a feeling of dusk and darkness falling.
A slow motion wave of disorientation populates 'We Like Mercury' - the sound of crickets interrupted with pregnant pauses add to the subtle unhinging sensation. Periods of longing and reflection shimmer over the title track looking for a sense of forgiveness.
Delicate Noise eloquently phrases personal, thought-provoking, emotional questions with a satisfying richness. And Steven Seibold (Hate Dept.) mixes these songs with kid gloves on, always allowing the delicate and childlike to come through unclouded.
Emotive and beautiful, Filmezza provides a soundtrack befitting an old photo of a loved one or a cherished memory with a warmth and satisfaction returning the ears to a sense of wonder.
