A nice album here of everythings-ok-tronica from Jerome Alexander. Opening ‘Sun Breaking Through’ there are some loping beats and burbling electronics but the magic starts once the strings and the whole thing takes on a gorgeous neo-classical type feel. Clever stuff as nothing really happens in the track, the vocals just repeat the same refrain but its all so lovely I think I might perhaps burst into tears.
Elsewhere its all hushed vocals, gently plucked acoustic guitars and field recordings of birdsong giving a very gentle album full of electronic lullabies. Fans of Epic 45 and The Album Leaf are going to lap this stuff up, and if sometimes you want to give him a slap and tell him to man-up the gently undulating melodies lessen any early signs of violence. The strings, however, are great throughout and bring a much more organic direction to the tracks.
Occasionally soporific beyond belief the album its best not to listen to whilst operating any heavy machinery.
