Old Morr Music mucker Manual appears to have a new home, the communal DIY behemoth that is MMM; the talented Danes' first outing for this label is an absolute beauty. He kind of blurs the edges between the tentative post-cocteaus sway of early Yellow 6, classic dreampop, the gentler edges of Krautrock & kosmische synth exploration and the ecstatic wall-of-sound extremes of the shoegaze fraternity. One track explores similar lush territory to Axl Rose's best friend Ulrich Schnauss whilst the following number, the epic "Phainomenon", will have you weeping with joy at the memory of an acid trip you had whilst contemplating Tangerine Dream's latest (when you still had hair) before a spangled guitar line enters the equation, recalling Robin Guthrie's timeless shimmer and your head is transported to a magical womb-like paradise! There's so much absorbing detail in this album, words don't seem adequate enough to describe its soothing melodies, pulsating rhythms & post chill-out majesty. Existing beyond any pigeon hole, this recording straddles 40 years of blissed alternative sounds & is an absolute labour of love! It's also the first MMM release to be granted a vinyl edition! Gotta be AOTW surely?
