There's a cool backstory for this release involving a deaf Glaswegian man who cycled over 3000 miles to the Arctic Circle and back.. Seriously man, I can barely get up the hill to Cash Converters on Town Street of a lunchtime so that sounds fucking mental. So Daniel Padden's troupe have teamed up with boutique mechanical instrument-maker Sarah Kenchington for the soundtrack of the film of said backstory and the result is this rather charming album, which to my ears often lends the Eastern European-influenced sounds of the Ensemble something of a Dirty Three feel, albeit far more avant-garde. Generally it's a fairly quiet, restrained affair (perhaps a little reminiscent of the last Matt Elliott LP) with the the odd burst of gypsy dance energy but it's never less than completely engrossing whatever it's up to. Good shit.
