8/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 June 2012

This is a Danish trio of which one of them is Jonas Munk (Manual, Causa Sui). But this is totally different to any of those outfits. It’s laid back Laurel Canyon-style folk with beautifully sun dappled guitar playing and drifting almost opaque melodies that rise and fall and on occasion, as on ‘Fourths’, reach Jeff Buckley-style histrionic conclusions.

The band it reminds me the most of though is Junip - Jose Gonzalez’s outfit. The whole thing has a late ‘60s Tim Buckley jazzy vibe (my God I’ve mentioned both Buckley’s!). ‘Esperanza Villannerva’ is a standout with beautiful jazz inflected drums and a wandering structure that goes hither and thither, drifting around in a hazed out druggy stupor recalling Robbie Basho.

‘Lines’ is more straightforward with electric guitar replacing the ever present acoustics sounding somewhere between Crosby, Stills and Nash and Real Estate. It’s a very impressive album overall and one I look forward to hearing in further detail (hopefully on a day the sun comes out but you can’t ask for everything).
