8/10 Andrew Customer review, 8th August 2014
The Idjut boys seem to have matured somewhat with this release. From their disco re-edit days of the mid 90's and the party starting dj sets that threw everything into the mix, this seems a pretty restrained album. Kicking off with the mellow intro of Rabass they move into a laidback Shine, with vocals by the A Man Called Adam graduate Sally Rodgers. Indeed the Balearic pedigree of that band seems to inform the direction of this LP. Furyher vocal from Sally appear on Going Down and The Way I Like.
One for Kenny picks up the pace a little with a chugging slomo deep house tempo and some keys work from Bugge Wesseltoft (who also features across a number of tracks). An early night track to get heads nodding and get people in the mood to move, especially when the Pierre-esque piano kicks in halfway through. Side A closes with the aforementioned Going Down. Another mid tempo tune with some nice guitar work that gives the track little more bite.
The flip opens with the gentle The Way I Like, followed with Lovehunter another track utilising guitar in a way fans of Almunia or Paqua would approve of alongside nice dubby effects and a balearic groove. The album closes with Le Wauk, a pleasing and fairly jaunty track with standout piamo and organ work by Bugge, ending with the brief Jazz Ace, a sunset suitable sketch of a track that references that slight melancholic feeling that sunsets and memories of nights gone by can bring.
All in all, this isn't what you might have expected from these guys, but it is a pleasure to listen too and suggests that there is life in the Idjuts yet.
