Drag City have been on a right run recently as far as digging out fantastic lost private press-type gems.

9/10 Brett Staff review, 22 July 2010

Drag City have been on a right run recently as far as digging out fantastic lost private press-type gems. The George Edwards Group and Jeff Eubank LPs were both fantastic and now this little puppy can be added to the list. Apparently Matthew Young's first LP was 'a moody, nocturnal electronic album' so this one must've been a bit of a departure for him, being largely based on melodies from the banjo and the little-used hammered dulcimer (which frequently lends an air somewhat reminiscent of that amazing Edward Larry Gordon record from a month or two back), with the electronics largely kept to the understated drum machine rhythms which occasionally rear their head. The result is gorgeously odd and seems completely out-of-time, sounding almost as if someone sent some odd scraps of modern technology back to medieval times where they just happened to be picked up by someone who'd already been sent forward to mingle briefly with the folk musicians of early 20th century America before being flung back (sports results almanac hopefully in hand) to whence they came. If you're after a record this week that doesn't sound like anything else in your collection, here it is!
