When you receive a CD in a brown cardboard arigato pak you kinda know what you're gonna be getting these days. It's gonna be either ambient, drone, pastoral or electronica. This one falls into the pastoral section and features folks from Port-Royal, Stafraenn Hakon, Epic 45, Millimetrik, members of Hood, The Declining Winter and more folks. All star cast assembled! It sounds great as well from what I've heard. 'Old Memory Tapes' sounds a lot like The Declining Winter and Epic 45 but then it features members of both playing on it. That explains that one! The acoustic guitar that plays throughout the album is the main feature as it's delightful. Accompanying it are instruments like melodica, keyboards, drums, glockenspiel, hammered dulcimer, violin, etc. Bloody loads of different instruments on here and together they create a warm sounding pastoral beast which is gonna appeal to fans of both Epic 45 and Hood.
