The Last Mixed Tape is proud to premiere The Fall the brand new solo E.P. from Come On Live Long’s Robert John Ardiff.
A record full to the brim with harmonically wrapped textures and soft intimacy, Robert John Ardiff’s The Fall is the kind of music that occupies a defined place and time. The E.P. is a soundscape in and of itself.
The E.P. is a soundscape, and given its Parisian church origins, it’s easy to see why Ardiff’s solo material has such a life of its own.
Recalling how The Fall came to be, Robert says: “I have so many songs bouncing around my head and not all of these go with the Come on Live Long sound. I was playing a show of these songs in a cafe in Paris and afterwards, a guy approached me asking if he could record me. I suggested we do it in a church close to where I was staying, so we snuck in one Sunday after Mass and this EP was born from that.
I recorded a total of seven tracks, three of which are on the EP. All the vocals and guitar were done in the same takes. When I came back to Ireland I showed them to Ken (from COLL) and he suggested adding new textures and that’s what you hear now.”
