This Mortal Coil - Filigree & Shadow mp3 album

Filigree & Shadow is the second album released by 4AD collective This Mortal Coil, an umbrella title for a loose grouping of guest musicians and vocalists brought together by label boss Ivo Watts-Russell. The supergroup consists primarily of artists attached to the 4AD label, of which Watts-Russell was the co-founder and (at the time) the owner and director

The double album is nearly half instrumentals (all of them given the traditional 4AD treatment of layers of echo, reverb, and phasing), most of which are pleasant enough but not particularly memorable.

The sophomore album from 4AD label supergroup This Mortal Coil is a collection of shoegaze folk and dramatic dream pop that feels like a movie soundtrack. Half of the album is instrumental, allowing the producers to flex their mastery of swirly, psychedelic ambience and neo-gothic drama. Surprising vocal features seamlessly weave into the tapestry, including a spunky take on Talking Heads' "Drugs" from club diva Alison Limerick, and Dominic Appleton's sparse, haunting reading of "The Jeweller," penned by ‘60s folk surrealists Pearls Before Swine

This Mortal Coil was a music collective led by Ivo Watts-Russell, founder of the British record label 4AD. Although Watts-Russell and John Fryer were technically the only two official members, the band's recorded output featured a large rotating cast of supporting artists, many of whom were otherwise associated with 4AD, including members of Cocteau Twins, Pixies, and Dead Can Dance.
