"An evocative work of bleak electronic atmosphere and suffocating dread, Failing Lights is the intensely personal vision of Michigan (via Lexington, KY) artist Mike Connelly. While he has toured the world as 1/3 of legendary industrial/noise units Hair Police and Wolf Eyes, Connelly spends his days crafting a much different sound on his own. Under the Failing Lights flag, he has self-published a nearly uncountable number of cassettes and CD-Rs of rough drones, detuned improvised grit and unstable acoustics in tiny editions that quickly vanish into collector-land. Intransitive is proud to present the defining -- and first widely available -- Failing Lights statement, an album of sinewy horror with a fine-tuned beauty within its darkness. A single piece in five sections, failing lights begins with disquietingly barren negative space. As the album creeps forward, it steadily dispenses sheets of diffuse throat-scratch and skittering strings, culminating in a blast of molten organ. Not noise, ambient, improv, black metal, or anything else: this is Failing Lights."
