- Born Music by Padang Food Tigers
The sleeve for this is utterly mesmerising. I don't condone drugs kids but this baby looks like a Gothic American mushroom trip. Actually, I do condone mushrooms! Why on earth are they illegal? Apparently this duo are from the UK and this set is a sparse, tentative & atmospheric recording that involves a great deal of space for the languid acoustics to breath in. What I like so much here is the "tease" - the dreamy, pondering minimalism of it all. Musically, this is occasionally opposed to them in style, but arrangement-wise, for some reason, I'm reminded of Tenniscoats or even spots of early Brian Eno, such is the delicate, near-ambient nature of their sound. 'Born Music' features acoustic & slide guitar musings, what sounds a like a stylophone, dulcimer and some of the loveliest flecks & drops of piano. For an album of this nature, the title couldn't be more appropriate. It sounds like an aural representation of new life, an awakening, something amorphous without complete structure or form that is all more fascinating & beautiful for it. I can hear why Chris from Under the Spire can't leave it alone & why he thinks it may be one of the best things he's released. I'm inclined to agree with him, this is summat quite special!
