JUNO FALLS Weightless (V2 Records) 4/5
True to their new album's title, Juno Falls (aka Myles O'Reilly and sundry travelling compañeros) float free of the tethers that keep many of their contemporaries on terra firma. Snapshots of moments in time, stories of contradictory truths and lives less ordinary (The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off) are woven, layer upon layer, on a skein of deliciously dissonant strings and retiring percussion and brass. Juno Falls thrive on obtuse lyrics that suggest a perspective that's at an odd tilt with the world, one that throws up its share of inventive insights into life's finer moments while luring listeners into its fluctuating wavelength with an almost Tom Waitsean glee. Harmonically divine, Weightless is ideal immersion material for eardrums in pursuit of something more than a brief encounter..
