This record starts in near-silence...a worrying development since we're currently in review factory mode trying to keep on top of this week's new releases and I've got this on headphones while Business Lady reviews something else on the stereo. Thankfully the ambient crackles of the opening are soon overtaken by swelling ascending chords, with a slow mournful instrumental marking the beginning of a lonely journey through the emotional wilderness with beautiful drones and tinkles heavy-heartedly, sometimes accompanied by nonchalant vocals; sometimes male, sometimes female, sometimes heavily reverbed, sometimes dryer. Over time the emphasis seems to be on drifty emotional soundtracky indie-pop neoclassical type stuff with Nyman-esque pianos and Armstrong-esque strings. The epic scope of the sound and the pithiness of the melodies make it a hard record to dismiss, even though I've heard these sounds before, and it's slickly recorded without losing any of its comforting intimacy. I've enjoyed listening to this record. It's been emotional.
