a wake a week...do we never tire of these endless reruns of our grief? with this debut release from his new project, dave dando-moore (detritus) offers us an intensely composed symphony of unending sorrow. if detritus is the debris of emotion, a wake a week is the tar-black residue still clinging like a parasite, clawing away at old wounds. like ashes on celluloid, 'little black cloud' opens up a widescreen vista of sound, albeit sullied and decaying. eschewing the polish and sterility that digital production can entail, the album embodies the crackle and spark of embers of a once-consuming fire, giving us an album that feels organic and alive. drawing comparisons with max richter, deaf centre, johann johannsson and the protagonist, a wake a week will evoke cathartic exorcisms of woe in even the most glacial of hearts.
