9/10 Li'l Biz 06 March 2009
'The house on the causeway' is the new long player from Reigns and the follow up to 'We lowered the microphone into the ground' which saw the band recording in a 'seemingly bottomless' hole in the sommerset downs and “Styne Vallis”, which was recorded in and around a submerged village that had been evacuated and strategically flooded in 1970 to make way for a new reservoir!! I assume the beautifully package follow up was recorded in the confines of a regular recording studio as the record is beautifully produced. In parts uplifting and occasionally unnerving 'The house on the causeway' is a mix of subtle electronica and folk rock. In parts it reminds me of the low key writing style adopted by the likes of The for Carnation with it's grand piano motifs and sweeping electronic ambience. The piano plays a large role in invoking the appropriate atmosphere and essentially leads each track with the accompanying instruments adding weight to the sound without overwhelming the hushed vocal tones which at times remind us of Fog. This is Reigns first release on Monotreme records which is home to 65 Days of Static, Stinking Lizaveta and a dozen other sterling acts so that should be recommendation enough but If that doesn't convince you to take a listen then just take my word for it, this is a classy release!!! Get involved.
