Boomkat Product Review:
With Radiance and Instability for Opal Tapes, Brighton’s Cremation Lily blossoms into something far lusher than his previous streak of power electronics for Strange Rules might have lead you to believe.
The sputtering vocal rage has subsided, leaving behind a calcifying quartet of ambient expressions much like the dichotomy between Prurient / Vatican Shadow’s alter egos.
He tends to a moonlit garden of decaying roses in Presence of Light whilst the glum thump and sore feel As A Sea Creature Might Watch From The Aquarium prompts comparison with Lussuria and The Sight Below.
Radiance and Instability finds him reaching for the sweetest strains of eldritch neofolk synth music, and in heavenly electro-acid-dub realms with The Shelves of Gravel, which sounds uncannily alike moments from The Connection Machine’s Painless album.
