8/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 June 2011

You'd be forgiven for thinking that nostalgia makes the world go round. Whether it's Pulp, Kingmaker or whoever reforming or Washed Out et al sounding like a Hall and Oates B side from '85 we can't stop revelling in the past. Thankfully, this title is something of a misnomer and if it's retro for anything it's harking back to the sound accompanying be-robed monks as they drift down dimly lit hallways circa 1897. On this, only his second album, Jules provides the listener with a series of beautiful blissed out drones shot through with the kind of late light melancholy that is perfect for whiling away the hours by candlelight on a chilly, windy night. If that description is a load of old cobblers try this: its like Gas with the beats removed and minus the feeling you are sitting in the far reaches of a dance festival while dub techno blasts out of a faraway tent. Comparisons could be made to Deaf Centre, Stars of the Lid and Rafael Anton Isarri. Chilling, heartbreaking ambient, neo-classical bliss. Recommended.
