Boomkat product review for:

black to comm - Earth

**Includes MP3 download voucher redeemable from the label** Astonishing new album from Marc Richter aka Black To Comm on Minneapolis's ever-reliable De Stijl, featuring vocals from the fascinating Vindicatrix. As boss of the Dekorder label, has introduced to an astonishing array of quality artists over the years, but his own music is beginning to eclipse his estimable A&R skills. The long-awaited follow-up to 2009's Alphabet 1968 LP on Type, this new album is based on an original score he created for Ho Tzu Nyen's film EARTH. There's no doubt that it's his most ambitious work to date, with deliciously woozy, woe-stricken vocals courtesy of Vindicatrix - impossible to hear without thinking of Scott Walker, David Sylvian or Antony Hegarty - at the fore of minimalist, electronics-daubed drone-folk arrangements that occupy a hallowed space somewhere between Talk Talk and Fennesz. It's really that good, conjuring a truly epic sadness but providing enough sonic nourishment that the tears feel like a good thing. The second half of the record heads deeper into loop-based abstraction, climaxing on the 15-minute 'The Children' but those lachrymose vocals remain - and the combination is just sublime.
