- Along The Weak Rope by Fourth Page
This is more like it. I'm hooked from the start! First a bit of info... They're a quartet from London City featuring various folks you can read about in the press release. What you get though is 6 tracks of jazz inspired Sylvian-esque sparse minimalism. The percussion is superb and the production of the drums (and everything else for that matter) is excellent. It's essentially percussion, piano, some strange noises hither and thither and occasional breathy vocals. That's about it. The arrangements though are superb and that, coupled with the excellent production makes for a really excellent sounding album. The vocals are very Sylvian esque... light and breathy and sparse.... as is everything in fact but it all fits together so well you'd be hard pushed not to enjoy this if you're a fan of experimental jazz. The album title is the stand out track with the hushed vocals, shuffly drums and moodier than thou feeling. Excellent!!
