Boomkat Product Review:
A bumper double disc album by Leicestershire's Jon Attwood, When The Leaves Fall Like Snow is probably the most accomplished work to date by the Make Mine Music regular. The first CD strives for a droning electroacoustic ambience, the like of which you might expect from one of Kranky's key artists. All the pieces are around ten minutes in duration, so consequently Atwood might be accused of approaching each composition with the same structure and the same goal in mind. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though, because this first CD feels like a series of different images all attempting to instil the same feeling of icy stasis. While the sound quality on show isn't always quite as spatially enriched or as three-dimensional as you might hear on a Stars Of The Lid album (for example) there is a similarly otherworldly, opiated feel to this music. The second disc takes a different approach, and is comprised of slightly shorter pieces that are less thoroughly shrouded in drone, instead composed from more explicitly organic instrumentation, as is the case on 'You Can't Be Everywhere He Said' which is held together by maudlin, tremolo guitar and the very quietest of beats. The more time you spend with this album the more you'll find yourself being won over by its all-enveloping slowness and understatedness. There's an awful lot of material to absorb here, but despite filling two CDs to the brim, Yellow 6 doesn't outstay his welcome.
