We All Inherit the Moon - 13 Song LP
Record Label: Future Recordings
Release Date: 2010
Gifted ambient group We All Inherit the Moon drop a discography album, compiling their work from their full-length and split with The Ascent of Everest, and slapping on 3 new tracks to produce one transcendent, genre-defying must-have for enthusiasts of gentle music.
How is it?
The new tracks contain hints of compromise between the band’s previous works. On their full-length, they opted to simply glide and whisper, while their section of the Ascent of Everest split found them experimenting with more dynamic sounds – the kind that brought strings into play. Here, We All Inherit the Moon stick with their signature, space-y atmosphere, but bring back some of the experimentation from the split too. “Part I” is a gorgeous twinkler flanked by rustling drums that sound like pigeons flew in during the recording session, while “Part II” drones with subtle, shimmering post-rock effect. “Part III” highlights silky and lazy strings, at times suggesting The Ascent of Everest. None of this is material that will turn the heads of those who wrote off the band’s past material, but it sure as anything will strengthen the admiration of existing fans.
