8/10 Mike Staff review, 11 April 2014
This is the second LP on MIE I've had to review this week and it has some striking similarities to the other one, Gang Wizard's 'Important Picnic', in that they're both improvised post-pop type collections with a ramshackle and spontaneous feel. That's where the similarities end, though. Unlike the aforementioned San Franciscan no wave clatterers, Claypipe's music is a meditative, droney haze, full of breathy flutes, electric and acoustic guitars and bonged out synth drones.
It's got quite a cosmic feel in the opening couple of numbers but as the album progresses there's more of a kind of earthy new age vibe. In both modes it's really warm, relaxing and unforced sounding though. On a couple of tracks they drift into relaxing acoustic pop a bit like very early Woods but the vocals are cracked and muffled, like they're coming out of an ancient transistor radio. It's really subtle and pretty stuff, and drifts around in a dreamlike haze. I'm finding its gentle warmth strangely comforting.
