The English melancholic-rock quartet, Dear Life,, released the LP Hello Frankenstein! on the 11th.
As with the scientist in the album title Dear Life, create a sapient entity in their laboratory, though rather than being a grotesque monster the roughly fifty one minutes, ten track, release (available on bandcamp) finds the music washes the listener in a cathartic, warm, sense of well-being as it delivers its theatrical movements.
The slowly unfolding ambient compositions each, individually, enrobe the listener with luxurious palettes of imagery and in combination result in an LP that is best enjoyed with plenty of time to recover in quiet contemplation long after the notes have faded from the room.
Currently touring the album in parts of England and France –
