Shelter (Deluxe Edition)

by Alcest
Shelter (Deluxe Edition) by Alcest
Released: Jan 2014
Label: Prophecy Productions
Recorded in Iceland with Sigur Ros' producer and featuring church-bell harmonies from Slowdive's singer, Shelter is where a one-time one-man French black metal band's dark soul gets saved by new-age-shoegaze dream-pop nostalgia. If you can distinguish Ride from Curve, by all means do not let Alcest aka Neige's pedigree scare you away from letting the string quartet here lull you into a fairyland of cloud pillows. For those less ready for bed, there's a pretty teardrop or two. "Délivrance," droning in at 10 slow-to-build minutes, may well be some kind of guru-mantra transcendence.
