8/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 May 2010
Here's a long overdue new thing on Ireland's super Rusted Rail label (or maybe I just haven't been paying attention). In lovely handmade arigato packaging and containing a 12 track bonus CD (I mean what else could you ask for?). The music is mysterious home spun folk music. Long drawn out dusty distant songs that at times recall a more palatable Richard Youngs (if anyone hasn't heard his high water mark 'Sapphie' you should do right away). It's full of eerie melodies, finger picked acoustic guitars and high pitched lost, longing vocals. Cello's weep despondently but theres a soothing quality to the music and after a few spins the subtle melodies start emerging from the murk. Recommended.
