8/10 Mike Staff review, 14 March 2014
Here's a reissue of Peter Walker's mysterious second LP of twangy guitar and sitar and sarod drones. It's very hard to describe. Sort of new-agey but very fast paced and freeformed and not always particularly relaxing. He's accompanied in his adventure by a violin, a tabla and a flute, joining together to make a big bubbly celebratory noise in some kind of raga/freak-folk tradition.
It's very hard to pin down to any particular genre, driving offroad down twisty psychedelic paths with a lively wide-eyed enthusiasm. Despite the fact that everyone seems to be doing their own thing a lot of the time, it flows along with a joyful bounce and a real sense of freedom. Far from the difficult listen you might expect from this sort of freely meandering post-folk chunter, it's actually rather enjoyable and intriguing.
