This 12" EP/mini-album comes lavishly packaged with three postcards, an embroidered The Geography Trip patch that looks a bit like a cub scout badge, and a download and tea card in a little packet of dirt or tea or something. How strange.
On the record there's some gently tinkling pastoral electronica which often exhibits a lot of xylophone-like sounds. It's gentle and hypnotic, with lots of warmly looping melodies and the odd bit of spoken word. There's often quite a Philip Glass-esque feel to their repetitive, metronomic compositions which twinkle and chime relentlessly along with a breathless inevitability that belies their restrained and measured tones, but with a touch of something very English about it too regardless of whether there's any voices betraying their nationality.
'High Fantasy' which opens the second side sounds a lot like EP opener 'Low Fantasy' played backwards, and 'A Million Voices For Nature' introduces some pizzicato string sounds that combined with some subtle piano bring to mind Poppy Ackroyd. This is really pretty stuff, patiently and painstakingly constructed meditative pastoral electronic pop with a distinctly Anglian flavour.
