8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 04 March 2010Don't know much about this record other than it features Richard Walters and Andrew Mears of Youthmovies as well as Einar from Eberg... That technically makes it a collaborative cross-channel super group uniting the forces of France and the UK in post-post-rock harmony. Musically 'Living Souvenirs' is not easy to define, it begins with a Current 93-esque vocal rant over subtle electronic experimentation. From there it wonders in many directions taking in gothic indie, dark wave, electronica, pseudo-Hood style organic beat making among others. The context is pretty bleak but the music is interesting enough to overcome that hurdle and there are enough surprises to excite and impress throughout. An interesting album and a vast improvement on Youth Movies previous output.
10/10 Tim Customer review,
I must first explain my 'ecstatic' rating - this is not necessarily a record to put you in a happy mood. But it is one to flood you with emotion, both happy, sad, scared, loved, alone, full of hope, fear and everything inbetween. It is life affirming. It is beautiful. If I had a soundtrack to my life, I would want it to be this.This record caught me by surprise. And it gets better with every listen.Tam Rush, I salute you - this deserves to sell many, many copies!
