Now that Christmas is on its way every other record seems to be some variation on the winter/snow/Christmas theme. Record companies falling over themselves to attempt to find a new angle - I mean how on earth did Tim Wheeler and Emmy the Great get together for their seasonal effort? He's old enough to be her father for God's sake! As usual its the more understated seasonal atmospherics that hit the spot greater than the tinselly fayre. This beautiful album was recorded in our very own city of Leeds, a city not averse to freezing temperatures over the last few years but now somehow locked into a cycle of unseasonable warmth. This is the perfect record for sitting in a warm house staring out at the snow gently falling past the soft amber glow of the the streetlights (disclaimer: Leeds streetlights are now sodium white but when this album was recorded (in 2005 and 2009) they will have been yellow). Glad we got that cleared up! What we have is a series of icy drones, dramatic, gentle, bleak yet warm. Its very reminiscent of previous goods provided by Glacial Movements so if you are a collector of their wares then go seek. But for the uninitiated like me, this makes me ache for a cold winter night, waking up to snow on the ground, huddled by a nice warm radiator whilst people slither around in the lane outside.
