I've not come across Adam Coney or his bands Morviscous or Calibos so I had no idea what to expect from his new album 'The Fall of the Flamingo Gardens' and I have to say it's one of the most pleasant surprises I've encountered lately in the endless review conveyor belt that is my life.

There are 11 tracks here which combine sideways-thinking tone experiments with casual displays of guitar virtuosity, framing his nimble-fingered fretwork in lounge-jazz shuffles on one track, electro-acoustic glitchscapes the next, here's some heroic John Zorn-ish jazz cheekiness, there's some Black Eagle Child-esque loopy pastoral lightness and sadly ringing folkiness...by the time I reach halfway I have absolutely no idea what to expect next, but it's all done with such grace and fluidity that I can't help but be swept along.

I think I prefer the tracks where the presence of the electronics is more prevalent, particularly the delicately flickering opener 'Leylandii' and the minimal beats and jazzy double bass of 'By Rural Carvers', but the Dustin Wong-ish frisky looping and dramatic string flourishes on 'Don Connection' provide another highlight. The whole collection is marvellous, frankly. I could listen to this over and over.
