Will Samson, 2013
Light Shadows is a falsetto-drenched soulful pop EP filled with the warm static hiss of a Fennesz album. I came across it, I'm sure, in my weekly trolling of the boomkat.com new release missives. I was working on my Aching with Amorous Love podcast at the time—it seemed to fit in well, so I tossed it on the pile. It wasn't until I was editing and assembling the mix that it really caught my ear; enough so that I went and listened to the rest of the EP. It blends a nostalgic, yearning with a delicate, ambient beauty.
