9/10 Ian Staff review, 13 December 2013

Mr Richard Adams, formerly of the excellent gone-but-not-forgotten Leeds band Hood, has compiled this super little batch of odds and sods, recorded from 2010 onwards under his Declining Winter moniker.

With a cassette-only release on the Sanity Muffin label it really encompasses the lo-fi genre in every aspect - a mixture of acoustic guitar and looping drum machines, with the added bonus of some simple yet effective electronics which bridges the gap perfectly from where Hood left off.

There are some real surprises here. On tracks like ‘Kentmere’ there’s some beautiful violin, and ‘Ruined Landscape Days’ is electro-pop joy without a guitar in sight. 'Lost Songs' is a veritable pick-n-mix of TDW’s sound, acting a lot like the two compilations that Hood released a few years back putting together all those hard-to-find 7s and compilation appearances from their heady back catalogue.

If you’re unfamiliar with TDW’s music then this is the perfect place to start. No two songs are the same really, Richard turning out totally original stuff and clearly not afraid to experiment with the minimal tools around him. If you are already a fan, however, then this is well worth dusting down your old cassette player for.
