The Foreign Films
The appropriately named album (available on bandcamp) serves as something of a musical reflective of a life-story told through the ages which is revealed during the course of the thirty one tracks lasting for heading towards two hours.
The soft lens focus in the hushed analogue tones of the album provides a narrative in itself which is able to warm the listener to the tale unfolding as exuberance, passions, foreboding, joy, sadness and sagacity thread through the LP, one which can be dipped in and out of at leisure or taken as a full dining experience.
Given the breadth of the story-line a pick of the release does no more than provide a steer to The Record Collector nonetheless – Teardrop Town – the seventh song on the LP is my selection.
The Canadian electro-goth project Borg Queen released the EP Blood Sweat Tears on the 30th of April.
