Boomkat Product Review:
Sublime fourth world cosmos-scouring from Canadian mainstay Colin Fisher, produced in collaboration with Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan. Light, airy and disarmingly delightful.
Playing guitar, saxophone and electronics, Fisher constructs an inviting soundscape on "Reflections of the Invisible World". It's somewhere in-between Brian Eno's "On Land" and the faded dream ambience of Jon Hassell, as the veteran Toronto player twists his instruments into pillowy textures and pliant, plastic tones.
It's more than just fuzzy ambience too - Fisher plays with our shared memories of jazz and blues, blurring familiar sounds into an astral hallucination. There are moments here - 'Double Image' or 'Sanctum' for example - that sound like Angelo Badalamenti jamming with "Blade Runner"-era Vangelis and it's hard to argue with that. Soothing stuff.
