8/10 Ant Staff review, 27 October 2011
Ahhhh close my eyes and I'm transported from this dingy office into green pastures as opener 'After Catalunya' evokes pastoral scenes with its delicate ambience and meandering almost folky guitar. This is the work of the talented Richard Birkin Of Derby who plays guitar, piano, loop pedals and also sings. You just get the feeling that an incredible amount of work, effort, passion and soul has been put into the albums creation. At times there are modern classical sounds fused with post-rock, ambient folk etc. but the sound as a whole defies those categories and I can see it very much appealing to fans of Epic 45, Hood, Declining Winter and all those experimental pastoral indie good guys. Comes in lovely screened numbered packaging in an edition of 500 copies.
