"Out of the glittering caverns of the soul crawls the newest album from Faun Fables. Light Of A Vaster Dark is a vibrant collection of songs and sounds excavated by songwriter Dawn McCarthy and supported by steadfast collaborator Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Light Of A Vaster Dark sparkles with fear, wonder and playfulness, elements that have been part of the tapestry of Faun Fables' music woven slowly over the course of five previous records. They have stood at the fork in the road where the myths of men and women meet the realities of their days, and with each album they go further down these paths. Light of A Vaster Dark meditates on the cyclical nature of light and darkness as revealed in the seasons of life, and in the beautiful power of steadfast and humble tales of housekeeping, immigrant pioneers and a civic parade. Sonically, the album is full of life, reflecting the new arrivals in the world of Dawn and Nils with fresh sounds. The sound of Faun Fables, always grounded in traditional instrumentation, bursts with color but stands smoothly united as a whole. Amidst the solid, elemental structure of McCarthy and Frykdahl's guitars and eclectic percussion whirl the violins of Meredith Yayanos and the vocals and multi-instrumental touches of Kirana Peyton; a lush continuation of their collaborative work with them on the 2008 EP release A Table Forgotten."
