Where Did The Night Fall EPK Part 1 – The Album

Biography

James Lavelle/UNKLE – the biography
Everything James Lavelle has created and initiated has been driven by the same irrepressible sense of curiosity and an incorruptible willingness to take risks. The music released today under the banner of UNKLE is very different from early UNKLE records. The spirit is the same.

James Lavelle was a fresh-faced fourteen-year-old when he began to ... Read more in Amazon's U.N.K.L.E. Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the fifth studio album by the British Electronic act. This effort sees the musical mastermind of the group, James Lavelle, team up with a whole range of talented guest collaborators, (from former Screaming Trees front man Mark Lanegan to Clayhill vocalist Gavin Clark) to create a sonically dense record that encompasses musical styles as diverse as Psychedelic Rock and Minimal House. Includes the singles 'Natural Selection' featuring The Black Angels and 'Heavy Drug'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Experience September 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
(If you have the album... put on The Answer before reading :)

Regretfully, I dismissed UNKLE for years based on a few tracks that I thought were 'alright' but not mind-blowing. Josh Homme, DJ Shadow, Tom Yourke etc. I love, so I gave their tracks a listen and decided their solo stuff/main acts hit me a little harder. Interestingly, since the release of Where Did The Night Fall and my obsession with the album, I've gone back and now love all the earlier UNKLE releases. So, this diatribe here might reveal two things: keep trying with a band because you never know when their music is ready for you, and Where Did the Night Fall is a fantastic album to begin with. I think it is one of the more approachable albums UNKLE have put out, and one of the most diverse. The alteration of feelings within this collection goes light to dark, fast to slow, deep to surface so often yet so seamlessly. I LOVE each and every guest artist, whether or not I know their other music. Not a single song feels like it misses the mark, which can often happen with compilation albums like this.

This album has 11 excellent collaborative tracks that all feel natural, and they progress effortlessly. The 3 uncollaborative tracks (nowhere, heavy drug, and ablivion) of course feel natural and are great additions to the cd. I must admit, I do basically skip nowhere and heavy drug every time listening through. Heavy drug always reminds me of some fleet foxes song I despise so I skip it. Besides that, I really do enjoy every song.

Some highlights among them: Follow me down and caged bird are AMAZING, primal and intense songs. Caged bird particularly blows my mind with how raw and mysterious Katrina Ford delivers on it. She sounds like a drunk gypsy woman to me, its amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another step forward! May 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Thinking that UNKLE would return to the club/DJ sounds of "Psyence Fiction" is like thinking Massive Attack might put out another "Blue Lines" - ain't gonna happen. Instead, Britain's second-greatest 'DJ collective' (Massive, of course, being the TOP DOGS!) have released a great follow-up to "War Stories", continuing to produce interesting, progressive alterna-rock that sounds like almost nothing else out there. And this time, even a little more haunting and less rock-oriented. No "big" names on this release, a la Ian Astbury or Rob Del Naja, but that makes this album even more unique, with vocals handled by a small, select group of revolving male and female singers who all helped to compose each of the songs on which they appear. Definitely one of my favorite albums of 2010. And check out the '180' that Groove Armada did with their new one "Black Light" - an 80's-inspired electrobash that also turns their past completely on its ear. Along with Massive's "Heligoland", a great year for "British DJ Duos"!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Start of Something Beautiful September 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
A band that has had a truly transformative journey, UNKLE have reached a point with their newest LP that seems to combine all their past albums to create something that could best be described as electronically informed psych-rock. Whatever you want to call it, this feels like a new chapter for UNKLE - like this is the sound they've been looking for. The balance of sonic elements is wonderful. A series of collaborations from the likes of up-and-comers and under-appreciated groups such as Autolux, The Black Angels, and more congeals into a simultaneously cohesive and diverse listening experience. Though the whole thing is seriously fantastic (don't let Joy Factory pass you by), some of the highlights for me include Follow Me Down, Caged Bird, and The Runaway - 3 tracks with 3 different though equally talented female vocalists. Follow Me Down features a stunning vocal by Sleepy Sun's Rachel Williams that simply must be heard, while Caged Bird with Katrina Ford displays a similarly powerful performance - both women carrying enormous presence, though never at the expense of the song (quite the contrary). Perhaps on the other side of the spectrum is Lisa Elle of Dark Horses, who goes in the other direction for The Runaway: what she lacks in terms of sheer power she more than makes up for in mood. Somehow she manages to convey menace, fear, and apathy all in the same song to ultimately come across like a severely disturbed Alison Goldfrapp. Great stuff. Probably my favorite song on the album.

Aside from the excellent music, the deluxe packaging for Where Did The Night Fall (which I purchased directly from the UNKLE website) is likely the best I've seen since War Stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars How can music this great not be widely known? September 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
People who are disgusted with the mediocrity prevalent in current popular music often times wonder why there isn't much great music being made anymore. Well actually it is being made, and albums like this one prove that there are still artists with integrity and vision. There is some very good, even great, music on this CD and I can't understand why it hasn't found general acclaim. I also owned and loved previous albums Psyence Fiction and Never Never Land. I realize that people don't buy CD's anymore, but for those that still crave the depth and breadth and height of music that strives to be art and actually achieves it, this is for them. I first heard the Runaway track on Sirius chill, and since Unkle uses a variety of contributing vocalists, I didn't immediately know that the song was from a band I already respected this much. I think I just grasped why Unkle isn't huge--they don't have trademark vocals or style that can be categorized. They're consistently great but there's no signature sound. For me though, this ads to the genius--they can cherry-pick vocalists to fit the mood of the song. Their songs have more of an individual identity than a band identity. Kind of like another one of my favorite bands that tread these same waters--Massive Attack. I'm so glad I purchased the whole CD instead of just the one song!
