Lifetime of Love
Lifetime Of Love was recorded in Georgia (Atlanta and Athens) and New York (Manhattan’s East Village) and gradually pieced together over a ten-year period. It finds Archuleta processing various stages of love, loss and regeneration via forlorn outsider pop, minimal techno and warm, weightless experimentation. Hymnal opener Playground has echoes of Eno and Grouper; lengthy workouts such as The Ghost And The Host recall long-lost Harmonia outtakes, or something from one of Warp’s Artificial Intelligence compilations; the bitter pill pop of End Of Heartache – has the scratchy guitar of New Order circa Brotherhood and the square pegness of Dazzle Ships - era OMD. Several songs are instrumental, while Bodymaker features Sian Ahern (Eaux, Sian Alice Group). Subtly grandiose and quietly epic, Lifetime Of Love really does live up to its title: a hopeful and curious beginning makes way for a morose middle before a bittersweet, optimistic end.
