Boomkat product review for:

a whisper in the noise - To Forget

Fourth full-length outing from West Thordson's A Whisper In The Noise, and what a lush affair it is. It's vocal-heavy for the most part, led by Thordson's gentle, Sufjan-style croon, but the monumental title track, which opens the album, is an instrumental (save for some ethereal choral layers), reminding us of the unbridled emotional swell of Morricone, This Mortal Coil and Max Richter. Similarly epic orchestral arrangements recur throughout the album, but are more subordinate to song structure - this tension results in some absolute beauties, 'Black Shroud' among them. There are also moments of relative sparseness - the desert-scorched drift of 'A Sea Estranging Us', for example, or the reverbed roadhouse lament of 'Every Blade Of Grass', or ambient piano study 'Maya's Song'. A strong set, warmly recommended to fans of vintage 4AD, Peter Broderick, Arcade Fire, OK Computer-era Radiohead and A Winged Victory For The Sullen.
