The Phantom Family Halo When I Fall Out on LP
Inspired by concept albums of the past, such as Pretty Things' SF Sorrow and Wire's 154, the songs for The Phantom Family Halo's When I Fall Out were all written following the death of one of Dominic Cipolla's close friends. It took Cipolla a year to write the songs that became When I Fall Out and ready himself for the move from his long time residence in Louisville, KY to Brooklyn, NY.
Writing and recording the album was cathartic to Cipolla. Some of the tracks are literal, "Dirty Blade" is hypnotic and dreamlike, while "White Hot Gun" is raw and urgent. The album is alternately resigned, angry and hopeful, the tracks are about someone who gets lost deep within the dark side of life and the friends they leave behind. It's a powerful record that pulls you inside and immerses you in its mood and sound.
