8/10 Brian Staff review, 02 December 2010

Well, the ladies Tara Burke AKA Fursaxa & sometime Espers member Helena Espvall have their 2006 Deserted Village collaboration CDr out on the champion's format at last, courtesy off those mysterious North East-dwelling musical outsiders Alt. Vinyl. If this was the kind of music you heard in a church people would flock there in droves, surely? Well there's an organ & choral element to it, isn't that good enough to praise your chosen deity? Actually, this is probably a bit too psychedelic & devilish to tickle the fancy of many god-botherers. Throughout 'Maidens of Saxony', under the musty sustained organ melody is this intermittent strange grumble that prevents you from truly tripping out in a Spiritualized-style mong. Voices glide in like wailing seagulls from all angles. That organ is soooo good, with a faint aura of decay about it. The next tune employs another sustained organ tone, more sad wordless lamenting but carries a more downbeat resonance with the added element of a two note guitar line that ambles into the spooked ether to play. This vibe is continued on side two's lengthy opener (together they form the twin centrepieces 'Koldovstvo 1 & 2'), the subsequent part involving the jingle & rattle of bells and a more distinct blissed psychedelic guitar meandering - the ponderous organ having departed to be eventually replaced with a truly remarkable array of muliti-tracked, mangled, pitch-bent and processed semi-operatic tones. Kind of like a really whacked out version of Inca Ore or summat. Properly unsettling, highly compulsive listening. There's elements of the eerie Scorces here too, a rather witchy element to it all. There's a brief vignette to finish the set which employs a melodica or a toy accordion style instrument amongst more woozy tropical burbles & queer searching psychedelia. A bloody interesting record from two powerful fringe players.
