For about twenty years Jason Sweeney, now based on Kaurna Country in South Australia, has been composing and recording either solo, under the alias of Panoptique Electrical, Other People’s Children and Simpático, or with friends in various musical projects. "Misery Peaks", Sweeney’s third full-length album, consists of eight highly emotional songs with a total duration of something more than 38 minutes. Constructed around Sweeney’s fragile vocals, layers of string section drones, slightly processed piano, cinematic cello samples performed and recorded by his frequent collaborators Zoë Barry and Jed Palmer respectively, minimal beats, subtle electronic glitches, other odd noises and field recordings, Misery Peaks perfectly blends melancholic songwriting, modern classical, electronic textures and ambient soundscapes. Carefully mastered by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), Misery Peaks is a wonderful personal album about relationships, intimacy, brokenness and romanticism, highly recommended for devotees of Scott Walker, David Sylvian, Anohni and the quieter moments of Depeche Mode.
