Cabin Lights Off (Self-Released)
Notwithstanding his mostly forgotten days as a very fine songwriter, Myles O’Reilly is known for crafting short films that focus on the work of Irish musicians, but under the formal name of [Indistinct Chatter] he presents a persuasive and refined variant of ambient/electronic music. Throughout Cabin Lights Off, which is themed around long-haul flights (remember them?), O’Reilly charts a wordless storyline that opens with Departures and closes with Slow Descent Home. Inclusive to all tracks are strikingly deep under-ether rhythms that, O’Reilly signals, allows the mind to blissfully meander.
