Tales From The Stereo – The Fabric
Fabric is the guise of Chicago’s Matthew Mullane and this is his first major release under that moniker, though he has previously surfaced on a number of limited releases as both Fabric and his own name. He describes himself primarily as a guitarist and “computerist,” however A Form of Radiance is a wonderfully spacey, endlessly pulsing bedroom synth epic…that may or may not have been created using actual synthesizers.
This record is a beautiful ambient pulsing mass, reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s ambient synth drones and good Tangerine Dream. I didn’t think I would like this so much.
