8/10 Phil Staff review, 08 April 2010
Home Normal are cracking 'em out at the mo. There's another bunch of releases due over the coming weeks. This week we got two newies and the one I've got in my hands is a CD by Tobias Hellkvist. It starts off all pleasantly droney and warm sounding like many other releases sound at the mo. It does develop though as it's not just your fancy warm drone. There's some glockenspiel, guitar, zither and accordian all loitering around making perfect sense. Indeed the tracks with more going on are really enjoyable. They're dense, well constructed pieces of music which will suck you in like a big sucky thing. Bits sounds more processed than others but a lot of it sounds unprocessed and simple on the ear. Textured lovelyness... Shut your eyes and it's like having a warm hot water bottle jammed into your stomach. Nice!
