Complete your The Telescopes collection. As Light Return ‎(LP, Album + CD, Album). It's a disorientating, phasing, pulsing, dark spectacle, and yet still totally uplifting. I don't feel lost with it.

As Light Return is The Telescopes' second album for the Hamburg label Tapete Records, following the release of Hidden Fields in 2015

The Telescopes ' 2017 album, As Light Return, is an almost 180-degree turn from their previous album, Hidden Fields. That record was their most song-based effort in years, with melodies and hooks poking out through the gnarly waves of guitar noise. In contrast, As Light Return is an almost unbroken wall of guitar noise, with nary a song to be found

As Light Return, 2017. You Can't Reach What You Hunger, 03:56. Hand Full of Ashes, 07:49. Something in My Brain, 07:37.

As Light Returns," with its dark emonic sound, instilled a sense of dread. Even though songs like "You Can't Reach What You Hunger" contain melodic, Velvet Underground sounds, which would seemingly negate such feelings,.

As Light Return is also true to their shoegaze roots and is also a natural progression from Hidden Fields. In short, the band have progressed from a merely experimental and menacing aesthetic with concealed moments of drama and sensitivity towards one that abandons almost all conventions that we associate with popular songwriting, including melodies, simple tonality, and rhythm and syncopation. The result is that it is truly difficult to find the humanity in As Light Return  . The Telescopes have in the past recalled the Velvet Underground with their artful use of noise, but As Light Return is spiritually closer to Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music (1975). Reed designed that album to be as obnoxious as possible.

It's a disorientating, phasing, pulsing, dark spectacle, and yet still totally uplifting. I don't feel lost with it. I felt instantly at home. It's simultaneously the darkest and lightest the Scopes have ever been. That contradiction of emotion means I don't think this record quite hits the focused, chilling heights of Hidden Fields - but this is a brutal jewel nonetheless.
