Album Review: School of Seven Bells

    There is a fine-line between the ethereal echoes and moody textures of dream pop and the ambient, almost alien sonic landscapes of electronic shoegaze acts. Dream pop may have the word "pop" in the title but it is only an emphasis on beautiful and almost sensual sounds that separates it from more traditional ambient music. School of Seven Bells (SVIIB) has made a career off of straddling this line. With their first two albums (when SVIIB was still a trio before the departure of Claudia Deheza), Alpinism and Disconnect from Desire, SVIIB made dream pop at its most ephemeral. The atmosphere was thick and enchanting but like the dreams that gave their genre it's name, their music quickly slipped back into the void from whence it came. SVIIB's newest album, Ghostory, is their most direct production yet, and while it occasionally sags under the weight of its more erudite ambient ambitions, Ghostory stands as a considerable step forward in SVIIB owning their distinctive sound.
