I'm in the mood for a prettiness attack this morning. I want the sound of the Welsh wind buffering the mic during Sharron & Micheal's dreamy valley wanderings and transcendental acoustic musings. That's totally what I'm getting here, this is as close to the sound of nature as free folk gets without being recorded beneath some filched undergrowth inside a Hedgehog's cramped but homely bush tree or wherever the prickly cuties dwell. Underneath the tentative, wandering acoustic guitars and the heavenly wordless vocal harmonising you'll find the tape-hiss on the opening track is intoxicating, the whole tune sounds utterly free as a bird - you truly get the sense of being outdoors on a breezy day with not a care in the world! By side two I realise this is essentially an atmospheric improv album that takes in field recordings, strange outsider tunings, chinking bells, some hollow percussion and, most arrestingly, the kind of meandering, chiming steel stringed dalliances that you'll quite adore as they circle sleepily and faintly discordantly round your mind - the cautious fragility of the playing throughout just totally enhances the spectral appeal of these magical organic passages. Very beautiful & pure music to soothe your weary & battered head-brain!
