8/10 Clinton 26 November 2010

Always a worry when you get a CD plonked into your hands with the words "you'll love this" but this one passes the Clint shit-o-meter with flying colours. Initially there's a spectacular cross fusion of genres here. Mmmmm! Fusion! It fits somewhere between what we now call witch step (sorry) and the haunting soundtrack-y atmospheres of a La Bradford or Pan American. In laymens terms its carvernous dubby beats and bewitching soul samples are married with twangy post-Morricone guitars. Each piece exists on its own terms, they do develop but not past the initial sound sources on view so once you know the instruments at plays thats what you are going to get. Like a lot of releases I've reviewed of late the dream like state of half remembered phrases, feelings is at work and any vocals are buried and heavily effected. But head honcho Matthew Barnes has certainly stumbled across an impressive sound all of his own and this is a very strong first outing. Its worth noting that the initial vinyl run of this with download code is still available care of this establishment via the obviously good people at Olde English Spelling Bee.
