Alfred Weisburg-Roberts has always been impressively productive. Even so, few producers would be driven or creative enough to release 12 albums in as many years. The Light Brigade is his 13th, and offers a distinctly dreamy, sparse and evocative blend of drifting textures, eyes-wide-shut vocals, folksy acoustic guitars and complimentary electronics. According to Weisburg-Roberts, the album was inspired by the grim and bloody Crimean War, which certainly explains the album's melancholic tone. Certainly, it offers food for thought, with bittersweet, layered instrumentals - mostly of a beatless variety - flanking a trickle of thought-provoking, reverb-laden songs. Crucially, it's a stunning set that offers an immersive, heart-aching vision of the horrors of war.
