8/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 January 2012
Starting with a News at Ten clock chime, this is a collaboration between folk minstrel Alexander Tucker and Daniel Beban. It's starts out in experimental sound collage fashion with all manner of found sounds, loops and noises combining to create a sonic pie. It's not all noise though intermittently there are tracks along the lines of Tuckers solo offerings with folky melodies and gentle vocals. Some of these are simply superb with a major highlight being 'Heir Looms' with it's Beatlesey melody. I'm reminded of Syd Barrett on a lot of these tracks as they have the same browbeaten vocals and tunes interrupted by bizzare shards of noise. Elsewhere you get odd bits of dialogue - a man answering a telephone for example. A lot of it sounds like old library records, soundtracks to bizzare documentaries. Quite terrifying actually but there is plenty of beauty amidst the oddness.
