8/10 Brian Staff review, 11 March 2010
Think we struggle here to fully appreciate some of our wares whilst the chaos of daily human traffic & general Norman Records mayhem shifts our consciences elsewhere, away from the subtleties & nuances of the gentler sounds emitting from the stereo. I couldn't even remember the new Eluvium CD yesterday. Had my head in boxes all day, my mind on the job, firmly on the prize. Which turned out to be a small ball of sticky tape & a papercut or two. Now I have this 'Similies' CD piping its way through the twin hot-wires of our posh studio headphones that don't appear to have fallen, broken, from a particularly dire episode of Quantum Leap at all. And it is fucking glorious. He's started singing a bit now too. He sounds like Interpol's Paul Banks, a little, or Wes from Cold Cave. The music is still formed around the ominous nucleus of his piano but now includes (variably) some delicious whirring electronics, understated percussion, drone and reverb. It's a fuller sound, a brave move & it truly fleshes out his vision. Grand melancholia that occasionally reminds me of Her Space Holiday loafing around in a dusty attic with Brian Eno. For those obsessed with just his fondling of ivories, this may take some time, but believe me, this is a recording rich in detail, focus & ideas. Usual sumptuous packaging too!
