8/10 Mike Staff review, 03 April 2014

The super-duo of Thomas "Benoit Pioulard" Meluch and Rafael Anton Irisarri are back with a second collaboration this week. I thought it was going to be full-on instrumental driftiness but actually it's much closer to a pop album than I expected. This time round they've drafted in Efterklang's Martyn Heyne and Telekinesis' Michael Lerner for a foggy, droney and shuffly take on dreampop.

It is of course understated and impeccably tasteful, a blurry landscape of artfully shimmering drones occupied by breathy, ghostly vocal melodies. It's got a sleepy, timeless grace to it, the notes hang in the air like cobwebs, introspective and uneasy, feeling their way forward. Even on relatively conventional songs like 'An Absolute' there's subtle backwards organ weirdness hanging in the air and moody vocals that fall somewhere between Peter Broderick and The National. It's really pleasant stuff, droney dreampop with a touch of class.
