8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 05 June 2013
Sylvain Chauveau and a couple of buddies have conspired to make this lovely CD of gently picked guitar and tinkly percussion on Flau. On it the trio play acoustic guitars and glockenspiels alongside other esoteric percussion and a toy organ, carving dense otherworldly polyrhythms which repeat in hypnotic, soothing swells.
Some of the songs hinge around extreme repetition, while others, like the particularly impressive ‘Sonando 5’, have more of a dream-like soundtracky feel which reminds me a little of The Kramford Look but with relaxed, organic shades of Jose Gonzalez or Ralfe Band. Thoroughly enjoyable and impeccably tasteful stuff, treading that thin line between arty minimalism and head-nodding accessibility.

There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
