The 2013 repress of the fourth album by US ambient artist Slow Dancing Society. Following on from the ebullient warmth of the critically acclaimed Priest Lake Circa '88, Under The Sodium Lights is Drew Sullivan's latest ambient epic. The album feels like a distillation of the three stunning releases that preceded it - and as such is Sullivan's finest work to date. The delicate interplay between focused melodic details and blurred washes of sound draws the listener into a hypnotised state, where the waking world and the world of sleep cascade in and out of balance. The album's first single '…and to the dust we shall return' sees the gradual accretion of reverberant guitar tones, emerging from the silence as sparse reflections across the stereo field. Slow searching melodies overlap and accumulate before a descending bass figure carries the song home to its elegiac conclusion. From the luscious, tactile dream of 'The Songs In Your Eyes' to hopeful finale 'Love Is On The Way', Under The Sodium Lights resonates with a rich emotional core - and the choking realization of our own transience. The album rewards immersive listening from start to finish, to really soak in its beauty.
