8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 30 October 2012
Who would have thought that Pelt would dust themselves off after the devastating loss of Jack Rose and continue releasing records? Not I, and yet that is exactly what they have done here, with an epic and sometimes difficult-to-approach double LP of loose avant-garde drones and dark ambience, all with a very human physicality of expression and what seems to me to be a palpable air of grief.
The first side focuses on layers of bowed string drones, then the second side is full of gongs and puttering percussive weirdness, and then on the third side there’s more strings and a Jew’s harp is introduced, soon giving way to more string drones, then on the fourth side there’s more gongs and then a short string one to close. It’s rather slow-moving and I found it quite hard work at times but the more patient among you will find some interesting tones and textures on here. Super sleeve art from the talented Jake Blanchard, too.
