8/10 Clinton Staff review, 02 January 2014

We’re not perfect. In the rough and tumble day to day existence of life in the hurly burly world of record selling we tend to miss things or forget about them altogether. I realised to my horror when filing away some old promos that we have yet to tell you about this super little album by one of the men from the Dirty Three. Mick Turner is indeed the appraised bands guitarist and has a distinct loose freeform style of playing which has graced records by the likes of Cat Power, that Bonny Prince Billy man and many others over the years. Here he produces a nice and varied organic take on a sort of freeform post rock which sits his guitar in with ramshackle drums, trumpets, lashings of melodica and the odd female vocal interjection.

Despite the press release claim that this is some kind of rock opera, there isn’t anything remotely grand on display here. What you get are dusty, atmospheric (mostly) instrumentals which as well as referencing Dirty Three, are often not dissimilar to some of The Pastels more soundtracky work (albeit with a bit more oomph to them), Mice Parade’s filmic, skittery post rock, Rex's lonesome post-rock and of course that Dirty Three sponsored Cat Power ‘Moonpix’ album. Its a nice drifty piece of work, heading along at its own pace, unfettered by the modern world, a dry, arid  soundtrack to doing nothing.
