Here’s the latest from Remember Remember, described by our Phil as “Progwai” when it was on the office stereo the other day. I’m actually quite fond of this lot, thankfully, and on ‘Forgetting The Present’ they’re continuing along similar twinkly and cinematic lines to their last one ‘The Quickening’, which I enjoyed a lot.
The Mogwai comparison isn’t unfair, there’s more than a streak of their fellow Glaswegians in the delicate repeated phrases and uplifting build-ups, but they’re painting with a much less rockist palette, mixing in electronics and chamber classical elements for a sound that’s just as reminiscent of bands like Jaga Jazzist, Neil On Impression or even a more grandly arranged Tortoise.
It’s a big, rich sound full of awkward time signatures, repetitive riffing and sweeping soundtracky arrangements. Uplifting instrumental music that’s been assembled with real care and attention and enough personality and ambition to set them apart from your run-of-the-mill post-rock revivalists. Rousing stuff.
9/10 Gary b Customer review, 4th September 2014
Over it's extended playing time it's too long, it's a magnificent thing and it uses a lush and mellifluous repetition to sublime effect, chime chime it goes tubular bellsing to the ionth degree without brevity which would have benefitted the pieces no end, Canterbury Oldfield ambient jazzers will love this.
Let me make it clear to say something is to long (not neccesarily more for your money) is not a criticism , just a fact ,I would argue length doesnt always have depth.
prune prune prune to whittle your way up up to the moon.
