Benjamin Finger
Scale of Blindness
(Eilean Records)

Reviewed by BravoMarco

Mellow ambiance with spacey tendencies from Norway. Benjamin Finger has produced another wonderful synth laden voyage. Sparingly used voice supplied by Lynn Fister, as well as various spoken word samples.

Like: Lawrence English & Stephen Vitiello, Ambrose Reynolds.
All good – Loving 3,6,8
No FCC’s (Mostly instrumentals)

1) Halogen Flux (3.44) Static laced with a gentile brooding ethereal quality.
2) Anxiety Blues (3.16) Laid back zappiness comings & goings. Lovely whisper vocals to finish.
3) If Memory Preserves (8.40) Spoken word samples under the synths. Moody & atmospheric.
4) Vagabond Void (5.36) Repetitive X factor in the Steve Reich fashion (long fade)
5) Fragrant Darkness (5.24) Synths quietly at play, with glimpses of the hushed voice.
6) Earview Map (3.40) Desolate organ drone sound.
7) Failing A Sleep (3.44) Loops on from the previous track albeit with a cheerier edge to it. Almost seems to want to break out into a Housey clubby track.
8) Vanishing Faces (12.14) An unrushed journey that starts slow & gradually picks up the ambient pace. Lovely tones throughout make for an achingly splendid 12-minute trip.
