6/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 May 2011
Georgio 'The Dove' Valentino is back. People try to pigeonhole 'The Dove', they try to diss 'The Dove', but the 'The Dove' always bounces back. 'The Dove' always gets his way. Evidently not a happy bunny, 'The Dove' returns with a bleak work which disturbs. The first track sounds a bit like an I Like Trains who have moved to Lithuania and got severely depressed. There's all kinds of twanging guitars, deathly drums, eerie soundscapes, vocals which sit somewhere in between Jarvis Cocker and Peter 'The Hair' Murphy. This features contributions from ex-Tuxedomoon types and they stir up an eerie brew of chilling soundtracky atmospheres. Highlight is 'You Wear Wistful Well' with its Morricone guitars, Spaghetti Western harmonica and murmured, chilling vocals. Comparisons could be made to Nick 'Dick' Cave, Tindersticks. Sure to go down well in parts of mainland Europe.
