8/10 Mike 14 February 2014

Here's the latest offering from the prolific duo of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff, presumably named after their favourite San Francisco punks. Here they've enlisted the help of Peter Broderick (that man gets everywhere) and Angela Chan on violin and viola respectively for extra windswept epicness in the loud bits and sweeping prettiness on the quiet bits over the course of four lengthy songs.

It's ultimately a slowcore/post-rock record, but as usual with Nadja the focus is on the quieter end of things, with most of the time spent in quiet contemplation with barely-brushed drums, drawn out chiming guitar lines and subtle drones and textures. It's a heady, moody, mystical sound. Aidan does some mumbling on occasion too, which takes it into Low-ish territory, but then every now and then everything bursts into the foreground with crunching, buzzing guitar and pounding drums and sweeping strings like there was lots of in the early '00s.

The strings are used very tastefully, only appearing at the times when they will be most effective and lending the music a real cinematic depth when they do. It's lovely stuff, and a nice accessible starting point if you're not already familiar with Nadja's slow, sad, tone-worshipping prettiness.
