I seem to have brought the Swedes home tonight. Philthy said this is "shoegazey" so thought I might like it because I'm miserable & stare at my shoes all the time. Well, it's the only fucking part of me that can see easily at all times and isn't my arms (which i'm quite frankly sick & tired of). I'm not being funny but this album sounds like Tears for Fears being mercilessly sodomised by The Beloved on 'Kissed Your Galaxy Goodbye'. A review mentioned Ambient house which is another possibility to consider - but a sort of giddy, spangled retro version, rather than the sleek, deep Dial-endorsed stuff - or maybe think dream-pop if it was hopelessly, ridiculously lost in the charts in the mid-90s! The production is extremely solid though - plus a constant plethora of ideas and a very warm, kaleidoscopic scope keep things (relatively) engaging, but the overall package sounds a tiny bit dated and lumpen in parts for my tastes. However, if you like the more balmy, blissed out & euphorically inclined dream pop & erm....beaches filled with campari drinking tossers wearing prada, this might suit your needs! The stand-out track for me, by far, is the superb 'Keep Your Friends Close' - an elastic, propulsive & rhythmic instrumental with a very engaging, widescreen aura! More like that please. The rest sounds a bit Goa or summat. Oh, Peter Wilkstrom is one half of Ecovillage. Bet you didnae know that.......
