My Dear Killer - Collectable Items [Boring Machines 099]

Released via the Italian label Boring Machines in March, 2k20 is "Collectable Items", the latest longplay outing created by My Dear Killer, a project that not only provided the starting point for the imprint with its 2006-released longplay piece named "Clinical Shyness" but harks back way further in its origins which lay buried back in the 90s. After the tender instrumental opener "Collectable Items" which fuses acoustic, kinda PostFolk-oriented guitars with dark'ish electronic atmospheres we're drawn into the sonic world of My Dear Killer, a place somewhat reminiscent of Apocalpytic Folk in its tense overall vibe of desolation, yearning and loneliness, yet also crossing over into realms of rich, cinematic singer-songerwriterdom, Indietronica and tender echoes of PostRock whilst presenting a touching, highly emotional, melancholia-inducing edge which defo might appeal to fans of Current 93's "Black Ship Ate The Sky" album or similar all time favorites. If this rings a bell for you, you defo need to listen to "Collectable Items" for a reason. Proper good, top scoring and beautiful. Recommended.
