Poland’s Lights Dim and the Ukraine’s Endless Melancholy have been busy since they were last reviewed here at ACL, releasing a series of small-run, beautifully designed EPs. (Lights Dim: please make a third edition of Moon!) Each act borders on ambience, but Lights Dim adds a touch of post-rock, while Endless Melancholy verges on modern composition. The two artists have now combined their talents for an EP.

The Soft Steps EP begins by focusing on the piano of Oleksil Sakevych (Endless Melancholy). The first note takes 33 seconds to arrive, entering only after the “Bed of Moss” (actually a bed of electronics) has been made. When light strings enter, we realize that the pianist is not alone. Then Lights Dim (Marek Kaminski) echoes his notes with post-rock guitar, and each performer benefits as a result. Finally, a military drum ~ soft steps, indeed, but confident. ”Piano no Mori” (nice pun) adds birdsong, which is obvious but effective. But the album’s highlight is “As They Grow”, which mimics its title by doing just that. The piano is joined first by tender violin, then tentative glockenspiel, then triumphant guitar, leading to a satisfying climax.
