8/10 Ian Staff review, 24 January 2013
The Dutch Lute player has teamed up with Jim Jarmusch again on this glorious album, this is Medieval with a capital M, if you could imagine the Jim O’Rourke/Chris Brokaw acoustic project Pullman then you’re not far off, side A features some beautiful melodic interplay, each track with flowing fingerpicking precision from a true artist!
Side B begins with a dark soundtrack piece like some kind of David Lynch nightmare and the mood changes somewhat but by the second to last piece with the lengthy title ‘He Is Hanging By His Shiny Arms, His Heart An Open Wound With Love’ everything is fine again. This is very nice stuff indeed, a real treat for fans of the aforementioned Jim O’Rourke and Dead Can Dance, dark, melodic and tense, a very special talent!
