Dusted Lux, aka Lee Camfield, blends the acoustic and the electronic to a quietly stunning degree.
Lee Camfield has a good thing going here. Even if his occasional singer-songwriting blend of acoustica-ambient has been done before, it's a sparsely populated avenue thus far. And the way Neverended, Camfield's third (to my knowledge) release as Dusted Lux, cobbles together these elements makes it sound as if it were a logical option all along.
"Sun Dogs" softly stirs acoustic guitar and a distant, looping beat with electric chirps. The title track rolls around next, giving the listener their first dose of Camfield's multi-tracked Bowie warble. By the time I get to the 10-minute dream "What Is True", I'm convinced that Neverended is the Brian Eno/Neil Young masterpiece that never was. Other highlights include the ghostly waltz "Mono No Aware" and the ever-shimmering "A Horse in the Orchard". Neverended ends in a near-six minute burst of light named "Adrift", a closer that drops every pretense of Lee Camfield being a singer-songwriter. Let's hope this formula of his stays confused for a while.
