  • marble sky – the sad return -students of decay

    out of stock

    Limited to a mere 15 copies, the original Marble Sky cassette
    is definitely an album which has been talked about more than
    actually heard. Released in 2007 by the Callow God label, and
    dedicated to “several friends passing through and across,”
    “The Sad Return” finds Impregnable’s Jeff Witscher conjuring
    devastatingly beautiful tidepools of romantic, nostalgic
    drone music. As evidenced by the surge of placid, warm
    Impregnable recordings which began turning up midway through
    2007, Witscher has become increasingly interested in lulling
    ambient music – a move which is in sharp contrast to his
    earlier, blisteringly harsh noise work with Impregnable. After
    hearing the cassette, we knew that this was material that demanded
    a larger audience and we’re thrilled to present the original material
    along with 20 minutes of new recordings.

    Listening to “The Sad Return” is akin to staring out into a grey
    horizon on a late autumn day. “Pulling Out Grass Under a Blanket”
    is a smear of beautifully evolving, evocative tones wrung from
    guitar and synthesizer. Witscher’s attention to detail and pacing
    is marvelous, as wisps of choral drones weave in and out of
    warm gushes of washed out synth discharge. Later, on “What You
    Might Forget,” surges of static threaten to unhinge a romantic
    dronework that brings to mind the levitating vistas of Mirror at
    their most poignant. Elsewhere, Witscher channels the glacial
    synth studies of Elaine Radigue into a myriad of focused, devotional
    dreamstates akin to the dayglo analog string fantastias put forth
    by Stars of the Lid circa “Avec-Laudenum.” Ultimately, Marble Sky
    stands as Witscher’s opus: a strikingly wrought meditation on
    sadness, love and the depths of memory.
