8/10 Brian Staff review, 02 December 2010
There's a lot of folk out there like this Part Timer dude. I kind of like him too. In a world where music is always trying to drive itself up its own arse in the name of progression & innovation, it's constantly reassuring to hear this gentle, pastoral folk style stuff. In an increasingly hectic world I appreciate these quietly evocative & relaxing sounds. Sometimes perky & melodic with a jaunty mandolin, other parts hazy & soothing, then there'll be a moving cinematic piece with a yearning melancholic edge. All infused with occasional field recordings & constantly inspired use of space & timing. Phil suggests a similarity at one point to the largely defunct Leeds act Empress. Many tracks have a lovely well-paced & hushed tenderness to them. Throughout, the quality is consistent, at its finest, these not so old-timers conjure up a strong marriage of organic folk elements & elegant chamber atmospherics. This could be their best yet, I dunno! I'm charmed nonetheless.
