Out of the many Dialects that are out there in the music world, this one will be of interest to those who enjoy the swell of abstract ambient electronics coming out of labels such as 1080p. Previously found on Tasty Morsels delivering the Advanced Myth album, the Liverpool-based artist has crafted a wonderful continuous journey that at times marries strumming guitar niceties with delicate, cascading synth notes in a faithful approximation of what 21st century folk music should sound like. The mood can shift in subtle ways, using field recordings to bridge gaps into more moody territory, turning back to serenity at a moments notice with a rich spread of instrumentation to point the way.
The latest release on Jonny Nash's Melody As Truth label sees Los Angeles-based talent Diego Herrera come forth with a new album under his familiar Suzanne Kraft moniker. It is of course just one of several projects the West Coast artist is involved in (Pharoahs, Dude Energy, Blase being several others) but the overall sunkissed, melodically rich sound he brings to them all make him a perfect fit for Melody As Truth. The seven tracks on Talk From Home were recorded over a few weeks in the winter of 2014, and feature Herrera playing guitar alongside more familiar synth tones in a mood that stays resolutely mellow from start to finish. Its three releases deep for Nash's label now and all of them have been sublime.
