    With We Fall, Josephine Wiggs has built a picturesque bridge between ambient chamber music and pop songwriting. Artists have been peering from one stylistic shore to the other for decades, but Wiggs travels between them with exceptional agility and poise.

    Cinematic in scope and scrupulous in detail, We Fall is an expansive mix of poignant and moving tracks that even contain occasional and well-placed vocal tones. More melancholic than vibrant, yet imaginative and gratifying, the surreal soundscapes on We Fall are a welcome diversion from the stresses of our mundane lives.

    On We Fall, Wiggs replicates the continuous momentum of the environment through sound, and she leaves just enough room on the rock to join in her wonderment.

    Throughout, We Fall is a slow, contemplative record, perfect for those introspective, late evenings. It occasionally has some interesting post-rock vibes, especially on the guitar-driven tracks, but elsewhere the slow piano playing is closer to older ambient records.

    An album that requires and rewards close listening, We Fall is an evocative reminder that there's much more to Wiggs' music than the Breeders' elliptical orbit.
