Boomkat Product Review:
A favourite from the Dais cabal limns festive feels in this reissue of his 2006 album, evoking nostalgia for childhood memories of “cold, dark evenings” waiting for his mother outside shops and supermarkets while seasonal songs drifted faintly on the frozen air
Originally released on CD by his Strange Fortune label, ‘Yule’ sees New York-based painter Tor Lundvall sketch tenderly absorbing scenes from strokes of lissom synth and snow treading beats, subtly filtering field recordings for that unmistakable cold air plangency between the echoic chill of ‘Busy Station’ and the 20 minutes of late-night, window-side stasis in ‘The Falling Snow,’ and with a subtlety of craft that recalls ambient classics from Signer to Biosphere.
But for all the signifiers of coldness, there’s a warm heart and hands at work that conjure a tip-of-tongue melancholy with appearance of his genteel vocals in the ambient synth-pop pearls ‘Christmas Eve’ and ‘January,’ alongside a necessary shiver of sleigh bells in the anticipatory innocence of ’12:00 AM,’ while ‘Fading Light’ makes beautifully sensitive use of shoegaze/dream-pop glossolalia.
