Amnion – Praise God For The Light Within Me


Forget Whale sounds, this is as soothing as several Paracetamol on a Sunday morning. If only Spiritualized had used this template for all those Gospel tinged albums they produced after they ditched the sound of Spacemen 3 (thankfully ‘Songs in A&E’ appears to be a return to form). Amnion is the work of husband and wife team Nikki and Aaron Embry (who toured with Elliott Smith in 2000) and a host of other contributors. The collective have already recorded an album called ‘AmenNamO’ despite only being officially together for just over 6 months. ‘Praise God For The Light Within Me’ really reminded me of an EP from Lovebabies called ‘Blue Earth Angel’ which came out a decade ago. It won’t sweep you off your feet like a whirlwind romance, instead it gnaws away at your affections until a purer love emerges. Yep, it is as misty-eyed wonderful as that – a persuasive slice of sonic spirituality. Amnion’s second album will be released later this year. KD
