8/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 January 2012
There have been some new contracts drawn up for staff at Norman Records and in the small print I note that I am now contractually obliged to like Natural Snow Buildings, such is the reverence held towards these French wonders from the management team. A tricky one for me as I'm not really bothered either way about them, the same way as I'm not overly affected by a 'Picnic' bar. If it was there I'd eat it but I wouldn't go into a shop with the express intent on buying one. Anyway this release is the second full length from the lady half of Natural Snow Buildings and it comes wrapped in a sleeve that seems good enough to eat until you look closer and see that it depicts a hooked nosed terror gouging the intestines out of some poor unfortunate. The music is basically hyper minimalist string pluckings, magick, psychedelic excursions into a netherworld of ethnic space folk....... or to sum up more succinctly 'yer droney shit'. Although track three really goes to town on the 'Riverdance' style jigathons, the remainder contains haunting, heavily effected string drones (stack a load of hall reverb on it on your 2001 Logic and you'll get the effect) and turning, churning ambience with hints of sitar and the odd distant soothing vocal. It is, of course, very high quality throughout and if you love Natural Snow Buildings and their ilk you will probably already have your wallet (or purse, some ladies do buy this stuff) at the ready.
