Rooms Filled With Light

Rooms Filled With Light

2012 (Atlantic)

“The second album from Fanfarlo sees them using the complex structures and sounds borrowed from Steve Reich and the weirder end of Scott Walker to augment their sparkly guitar jangle as they explore the bigger lyrical themes (science, philosophy, apocalypse) where most fear to tread. ... Best is ‘Tunguska’, where a velveteen swing guides home a song about a meteorite exploding over Siberia. Large Hadron pop that’ll frazzle yer neurons.” NME

“Balthazar’s dark humour only reveals itself to those willing to look sideways to find it.... like all the best love affairs it endures, and reveals new sides of itself with each listen.” 8/10 Drowned In Sound

Special Edition £11

We found a surprise cache of a few dozen of these special editions of Reservoir. What a beautiful plast from the past it was. Here’s how we described them when they came out:

Following the handmade, very limited special edition of Reservoir which sold
out at Rough Trade in 4 days, we have put together a second, even more
beautiful one. It will still be limited, but this time to 3,000 numbered
boxes. This special edition will be a slightly larger (about the size of a
7″), square linen box with foil blocked mask imagery on the lid. Apart from
the album itself, a second CD with eight songs – album outtakes and
exlusive, unreleased material – will be included. The special edition will
also contain beautiful fold out art on heavy paper with the song lyrics. But the pièce de résistance is probably… the board game. A vaguely macabre (and unwinnable) game featuring beautiful customised dice and themed game pieces.
