Album Review: Fuzzy Lights

Fuzzy Lights -’Rule Of Twelfths’ (Little Red Rabbit)

Fuzzy Lights’ previous, sophomore album Twin Feathers, was critically acclaimed when it appeared in 2010, and they’re no doubt hoping for the same with this latest release.

On the plus side, there are a lot of interesting ideas going on here, and a willingness to experiment. By and large there are two main features of this album: One, a pastoral folkiness, Two, a noisy post-rock. The downside is that while there’s lots going on, the end result doesn’t seem to hang together terribly well to these ears. Over the course of several listens I’ve found myself to be getting into something, only to then find myself completely confused by something that then comes in and doesn’t actually seem to work.

So yes, some interesting things to investigate, but rather hard going as an album…
