8/10 Mike Staff review, 11 July 2014
Get out your hankies! Thoughtful music makers Dakota Suite are back this week with a new collaboration with Quentin Sirjacq, which in contrast to recent Dakota Suite work centres around mostly vocal tracks. Ploddy modern folk ballads, piano-led with breathy defeated vocals and surprising little arrangement details and of course the heartbreak-friendly economy of arrangement that you expect from Chris Hooson and co.   There are several instrumental tracks interwoven into the narrative too. I particularly like 'Committing to Uncertainty', which pairs off stoical brass against panic-attack jazz clarinet in a cinematic, bubblingly emotional march that ascends into Gustafsson-esque abandon and then stops dead. The loungey aspects in some of the vocal tracks are really reminding me of Sandro Perri, too, but Hooson's vocals themselves are more of a maudlin growl than Perri's silkily soulful croon. As usual with this lot, it might bum you out, but it'll bum you out with such grace and finesse that it's hard to find the motivation to hold it against them.
