9/10 Brian Staff review, 21 April 2011

More doomy ethereal motorik post-punk from this impressive Tropic of Cancer duo! Featuring the Sandwell District affiliated Juan Mendez (Silent Servant) and a lady called Camella Lobo, this EP is quite gorgeous, in a proper sorrowful way! Their sound is built around a rudimentary mid-paced drum machine that basically keeps the ravishing dark hues & spectral atmosphere of the songs anchored beautifully. The opening track 'A Color' has some strong blurry shoegaze/4AD characteristics, like prime Slowdive being remixed by an icy, mercurial cold-wave electro act. Anyone who was into Factory records or the early 80s goth scene will love 'Temporal Vessels' - a real eerie semi-funereal tune. It also sounds like a purer, slower, stripped-back take on the aural magic what that chappie from The Soft Moon has been practicing recently. The flip is a similarly 80's inspired slab of miserabalist dream-pop underpinned by Moon Duo-esque "Spectordrums" (tm), a thin bed of reedy ponderous old organ, then coated with Lobos gliding, tragedy imbued processed vocal to create a heady, heavy-hearted epic of harrowing but scintillating proportions. Getting real good this label, oh yeah.....
