9/10 Brian 22 January 2009
From the imperial stables of ambience, Infraction records, gallops a champion stallion going by the name of No Traces, a fine 2 headed beast. It's creators Sleepy Town Manufacture & Unit 21 throw woozy waves of languid synth at your ears, morphing underneath a constant roll of earthy static whilst distant hazy yodels and meandering piano tones crawl quietly beneath the beautiful murk. You really need headphones to appreciate the many layers on this album. Some of it sounds like a worn down Tangerine Dream record, what with the absorbing melee of fuzz surrounding the blissed gusts of pacifying emotive drone underneath. On 'Blooming Woods' a flute (or maybe a piccolo or some wild reed instrument) goes joyously dancing in and around your lug holes but there's this dreamy detachment about it's snaky progress that makes it sound like it's being played outside your front door, waiting to be allowed entry! Overall i'm reminded of Pole's classic trilogy of crackle & static gems under laid with the essence of Global Communication's '76:14', this is a very beautiful 8 tracker full of stately drones, moving tones, ghostly effects, subtle percussive delights & profoundly moving passages, full of wonder & intrigue. A gorgeous package too, with INITIAL copies arriving with a bonus 3" in a little booklet and some designer postcards, all housed in a posh laminated card gatefold. A labour of love indeed from our Russian friends, and I mean friends. They can stay at mine anyday if this is the kind of noise they make!
