Fool's Ghost - Dark Woven Light (2020)
The debut album from this US trio.
The band consists of Nick and Amber Thieneman. The lineup sounds like it is made by synths, guitars, drums (programmed), bass and female vocals.
I know nothing about this duo besides of their bandcamp page and that they are signed on Prosthetic Records.
The music on this forty odd minutes long album is a mix of gloomy indie records and post-rock.
The songs are driven by some slow half-acoustic guitars and Amber's vocals. And this goes for most of the album.
This kind of music can be very effective and good. Less is more is sometimes not a bad thing. That is... If the songs are good.
In this case, they are not. There is not many good details here either.
As a proghead, this may not be the music for me. Nevertheless, the songs here is lacking in quality. This makes this album a dull but still a decent album. Better songwriting next time, guys.
