8/10 Andy 19th December 2015
This beautiful album may have passes many by, produced in limited quantities on vinyl this welcome repress may help it find a home in the collections of fans of deep cosmic house. Across the 3 records you'll find tracks that reminiscent of Theo Parrish at his hypnotic best, more esoteric productions that suggest a Flying Lotus / techno hybrid alongside more boogie or even disco influenced sounds.
This is in some places a more challenging listen than I'd originally expected. What I'd heard of Linkwood previously led me to expect a more straight up jazzy deep house album. However the initial feelings of doubt about the album gave way to pleasure as on second then third listen those more leftfield and experimental tracks reveales themselves to be warmer and more approachable.
The fact that the album is more than a set of smooth grooves strengthens it. Its variety should mean that those who might not necessarily buy 'house' music but do buy records by Boards Of Canada, the Aphex Twin or Floating Points will find much to enjoy here.
