Yet another musically eclectic and wonderfully lo-fi output by the experimental ambient/doom metal freaks Picture Ann has seen the light of day, more specifically the full-length album entitled (Missings and Captures) Retold, which was released upon an unsuspecting public on January 28 via all the usual streaming services and digital music stores out there.
The five compositions that constitute the record are all loosely connected in that each of them is inspired by feelings of yearning and the notion of remembering as in the act of remembering someone or something, which is what song titled ala ‘While the Theaters Are Dark’ and ‘A Lousy Funeral for Iris’ allude to. In the words of J.N., “This one is undoubtedly the most ambient-influenced entry in our discography yet, and although it may test the patience of some, I hope that others will enjoy immersing themselves in it and perhaps finding something of worth hidden inside these introspective pieces. Some of the ideas and melodies are old and date back to 2005 and 2006, but the album is not merely a patchwork of material from various studios and eras; there is a red thread running through it all.”
