There’s pain, understanding, warmth, and empathy couched in all of Fog Lake‘s material, which continues to act like a well-loved worn blanket on a cold night, no matter the length. “oh my god”, the ambient pop project’s latest, is also its most brief, clocking in at a scant 67 seconds. Every one of them counts, suffused with tender meaning and a knowing intention. It’s half-haunting, half-peaceful piano plinking and clean reverb’ed out guitars lift up Aaron Powell’s voice and let it soar into the ether. “oh my god” also has the distinction of kicking off a tremendous, important charity compilation, Running from the Dark, that was released for mental health awareness month, with all proceeds going to National Alliance on Mental Illness. Donate whenever possible.
