9/10 from Ant (Staff) on 22 October 2009You know when I first clocked this ‘Mane Blooms’ 7” by Celer I must admit that I had my reservations about how suitable their music is/how it would translate to the format. However after a few listens I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s actually really cool. The record serves as a kind of counterpart to the excellent ‘Brittle’ CD recently released by Low-Point, but also as a perfect kind of sampler for anyone that is new to Celer’s music. The two tracks have that distinct Celer flavour that really grabs my soul. The recordings were created with cello, piano and field recordings, all processed to pretty much unrecognizable levels. The attention to detail is wonderful, the tracks are very subtle and once you get in, there is pure warmth and emotion emanating from what on the surface is quite a minimal construction. The beauty lies in the simplicity, the gently evolving tones. It’s magical stuff to say the least. The bonus of the 7” format is that you can play it at either 33rpm or 45rpm for an alternative version of each track. I would say for me this is up there with their finest work and for any Celer fan is pretty much essential. Total class as always from both a consistent artists and label. Another pristine Celer production and the only stuff by them ever to be committed to vinyl, but hopefully not the last... Highly recommended.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
