The Turkish producer Ekin Fil has in only a few years produced six albums on a who's who of drone rock. From Root Strata, Students Of Decay, No Kings and even an EP for Berlin techno experimentalists (Summe). The Ghosts Inside LP continues to find Fil summon ethereal shoegaze deconstructions through 'echo, shadow and whispers', to accompany the guitar, voice and array of pedals that have been central to her studio setup. The LP was said to have been written during a period of personal despair. It's an introspective sound, channelling the sadness and dismay of her native home in Istanbul. In confronting these subjects, Fil blocks out the rest of the world to concentrate on the immediate issues of human relationships and their many complications. There will be there be obvious comparisons to seminal artists on 4AD, Projekt and Kranky, but Fil certainly carves out her own distinct take on said aesthetics and this is a beautiful and altogether mesmerising effort.
