Slowly meandering through villages, Snails capture a pastoral rhythm. Some things are just the way they’re supposed to be, especially these two gentle folk pop songs. There’s absolutely no rush on Talking to Anthony / Winter, and even the flute and organ are only heard when they're needed most. Limited to 500 copies!

The way they’ve done the sleeve makes it look like a picture disc but its not - its a round sleeve covering the clear vinyl. I’m foxed already. Snails live up to their name (sort of) by making a slow moving piece of slowcore/singer-songwriter type stuff that sits somewhere between Galaxie 500 and Belle and Sebastian. Everything is carefully put in its place, every word uttered with due though - cello pops in to the mix as if just putting its head round the corner to say hello.
Overleaf is something altogether more jaunty and a bit sickeningly sweet. The Belle and Sebastian influence could still be applied as worryingly could Magic Numbers. Still, this does no harm to children or animals but is a bit like eating an entire sackful of caramacs and expecting not to be sick.
