8/10 Staff review, 04 September 2015

Space folk troubadour Matt ‘MV’ Valentine (cool nickname, real ambiguous) has already wowed us with his acoustic Kosmische bliss this year, and he did it with the overwhelming double LP ‘Midden Mound’; someone was clearly all “hey MV, scale it back for the 9-5ers, would you?”, because this 7” offers two brief snippets of his euphoric music. Side A, “Before It’s Gone”, is MV in typical form, beaming a ray of synth light through foggy strums and U2 riffs. It comes out sounding like Kim Doo Soo’s wandering folk music, given the kind of gorgeous reassurance of Real Estate. His voice (plus some harmonies from Jeremy Earl and Mr. J Mascis) only cuts out of the “la la las” towards the song’s endpoint, where he starts hugging us with words.

“Before It’s Gone” was written around the time recording guest Mick Flower (of the whacky noisemaker ensemble Vibracathedral Orchestra) had to fight a volcano, but it sounds chiller than a waterfall yawning.  “Anji Variations” keeps up (or down) the vibe with gorgeous guitar picking placed against Valentine’s typical empty-space acoustics. Some spacier tones get to play, but you know how MV works: he makes space sound like a leafy national park.
