8/10 from on 25 February 2010

From what little info I can cobble together it seems as though this charmingly arigato-pak'd album was devised as a wee bit of a concept effort with a post-Soviet Eastern Bloc sort of feel, something which titles like 'Die Hunde', 'Gestalt', 'Honecker', 'Stasi' and 'Mielke' give a bit of a clue to I guess. Stylistically this seems to be split between chant-like ballads accompanied by delicately picked acoustic guitar (which is very nicely recorded I have to say) and fantastically textural pieces of subtle electronica which really paint melancholic pictures of the downtrodden, rained-on urban landscapes they seem to be trying to evoke.. Places eternally stuck between the present and the past. Recordings/samples from the field also pop up from time to time, further strengthening the sense of place that runs through these tracks. I reckon there's plenty of you out there who'll be well into this.
