8/10 Penrith Steve 24th July 2015

Despite releasing 10 albums to date under his own name, John Vanderslice mainly plies his trade as a producer and is an absolute obsessive production nerd. His production techniques are experimental and have given us some superb songs, "Too Much Time" from 2009's "Romanian Names" being a particular highlight of his career. Given his desire to experiment and create, hearing he had decided to record an album with a full orchestra sounded rather interesting to me.

This is not a straight forward orchestral pop record by any means. The orchestration takes more cues from difficult to listen to modern classical music rather than the cinematic sweeping strings you might expect. There's studio trickery all over the place with Vanderslice adding corners where you'd expect smooth curves. "Convict Lake", "Overcoat" and "The Piano Lesson" are good examples. It's a lovely album.
