8/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 December 2012
An ‘Endless Bummer’ by Two People in a Room could create a frisson of excitement if thought about a certain way, not that this album is likely to soundtrack any affairs of a carnal nature. It’s a duo of Berlin-based people Michelle and Rene. Rene is the man from Pillowdiver who, on his own, produces elongated floaty music. Together with Rene, he veers off into further elongated floaty music territories. Opener ‘Horses in My Head’ (no thanks) is a long soft drone that will sit well with fans of Celer and the like.
‘I Like You, I Like You Very Much’ utilises to nice effect the twin guitar and effects pedals combination and sounds something like the more ‘out there’ Windy & Carl compositions. ‘Invitation To Love’ is a low end, slightly metallic sounding drone which builds in intensity whilst ‘Swimming Pool 1969’ introduces the outrageous hi-camp disco of Sylvester into the proceedings. I joke, of course! It’s another soft, slow paddy drone like wind being blown softly through a massive feathered pipe.
