Boomkat Product Review:
Phaeleh's debut album 'Fallen Light' lands on the freshly minted Afterglo imprint, ready to sooth the souls of world-weary skankers from Bournemouth to Benwell. Aside from the album's titular lead single with Soundmouse, there are 12 brand new and exclusive Phaeleh productions, each as opulently layered and emotive as you'd expect. This is very much a home listening/headphone primed listening experience, from the symphonic inflections of 'Losing You' to the rich cellos of 'Lament', balanced with tuffer skankers like 'Plateau' and 'Badman', or the skipping syncopations of 'Delusions'. There's also a nice, Burial-esque moment of beatless ambience on 'Ghost Of Memories', while the final two tracks perhaps signal a new direction into a slinkier House mode.
