This Mortal Coil’s 1986 sophomore LP gets the reissue treatment. Filigree And Shadow is a sprawling collection of art-pop from Ivo Watts-Russell’s project. Keen that all four of the record’s sides should work as individual units as well as a unified whole, Watts-Russell enlisted the help of artists such as Richenel and Alison Limerick to craft Filigree And Shadow. The resulting album is an ambitious collection that takes in Durutti Column-esque dream pop, shoegaze, chamber music, neo-folk and much more. It still sounds groundbreaking all these years later.
