It’s been many years since I last enjoyed a record by Scott Heron (AKA Prefuse 73) but this collaboration with Teebs immediately takes me back to the days when I played ‘One Word Extinguisher’ on repeat and refused to accept that there was any other music out there worth bothering with.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 October 2013

It’s been many years since I last enjoyed a record by Scott Heron (AKA Prefuse 73) but this collaboration with Teebs immediately takes me back to the days when I played ‘One Word Extinguisher’ on repeat and refused to accept that there was any other music out there worth bothering with. The sound here is very Scott Heron, it has the fantastic melodic chord progressions, the wavering, fluttering synths, the hip hop inflections but the overall sound is much lighter, like a particularly well whipped souffle.

On ‘The Way That Wind Moves Pt1’ the effect is stunning, it's like flying a kite on the beach on a sunny, windy day, utterly joyous evocative music of the highest order. The album is a treat of haunted sample-based electronica. Sometimes there are barely any beats to speak of, ‘The Way That Wind moves Pt2’ consists of just a sampled synth sound wavering around a melody doing that My Bloody Valentine tremolo effect. In fact parts of this remind me of the more out there bits of ‘Loveless’, at other times it recalls the drifty open spaces of Celer.  Closer ‘Movement In Mercury’ has a light skittery beat, drifty summer day synths and warm, chopped guitars. It exemplifies an album, which although slight (just the seven tracks), is enormously effective while it's here. It won’t reinvent the wheel like his earlier work but it's a pretty sweet way to spend half an hour.
