9/10 Brian Staff review, 10 December 2010

Who are Elfin Saddle? This is a delightful & sumptuous package whatever. Seemingly they're an experimental folk/sound art duo (a 3-piece live) who also specialise in eccentric organic sculpture & stop-motion animation built around delightfully random detritus. This is the culmination of their work - a bizarre 23 minute film & some truly lovely music to accompany it - half of it the incidental score to the film of the same name. The music on side one of the vinyl has a charming waltzy folk & sea shanty feel with some piano & violin thrown in there to create a rustic improvised soundworld over the course of three tracks. Side Two's "OST" has a very strong impact, both on it's own & within the framework of the film, evolving in a very mesmeric fashion. Opening with rather Moondog-sounding hollow percussion & birdsong, this is a slowly shifting collage of magical samples & creaky, hypnotic folk improvisation which eventually blossoms into a wheezy drunken funeral march; a little like Matt Elliot's solo gear but considerably less forlorn & dark-core. Having watched the main 'Wurld' feature last night, I can safely say you'll be charmed & hypnotised by the ever-rotating cast of metal bits 'n' bobs, plastic toy ephemera, clockwork artifacts & random curios mingling with the natural "wurld" (a corner of some garden somewhere) It all gets quite metropolis at one point and has an undeniable poignancy. Not to mention the fact you also get a full riveting live concert filmed at the Montreal Contemporary Arts Centre! A lovely thing to buy a loved one for Christmas; all presented in an amazing thick die-cut recycled card sleeves with numerous cool inserts & shit. Constellation always push the boat out, will they actually get it back to shore after this multimedia feast? For fans of Tunng, The Books & The Microphones/Mount Eerie!!
