Following on from the ebullient warmth of the critically acclaimed Priest Lake Circa ’88, ‘…and to the dust we shall return’ is the perfect introduction to Drew Sullivan’s latest ambient epic, Under The Sodium Lights. Accompanied by a stunning video by Latvian filmmaker Ieva Balode, this glorious seven-minute song sees the gradual accretion of reverberant guitar tones, emerging from the silence as sparse reflections across the stereo field. Slow searching melodies overlap and accumulate before a descending bass figure carries the song home to its elegiac conclusion. The song, like all Slow Dancing Society releases, resonates with a rich emotional core – and the choking realisation of our own transience.

The video (included with this download) for ‘…and to the dust we shall return’ was created by Latvian filmmaker and artist Ieva Balode. Currently studying at the Latvian Academy of Art, Balode has taken part in many exhibitions in Latvia, and has also presented her own solo exhibition in the capital, Riga, where she currently lives and works.

Slow Dancing Society Spokane

As with Brian Eno’s finest moments and David Sylvian’s ambient explorations, Slow Dancing Society music manages to dissolve its temporal markers and speak about moments removed from time. It talks to the delicious flaws of memory and feeling whilst never sullying itself with literality or simple documentation.
