9/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 09 January 2013
Ah, this is nice. I’ve just spent the past few hours reviewing difficult dark ambient and noise records so it’s a welcome relief to be listening to a record with easily defined melodies and recognisable tones on it. Here London’s Plantagenet 3 are mixing sparse almost Suicidey drum machine beats with epic, slow-burning surf guitar that comes across like a midpoint between The Shadows, Ennio Morricone and Earth.
If I have a quibble it’s that the music is so slow-burning that it’s all over by the time you’ve really got into it, but these tracks still ooze a timeless, sleepy slow-surf class which stands up to repeated listens. Moody, slick and pleasingly minimal.
