8/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 November 2015
This is a wonderfully packaged record that would have fitted snugly in to my ex’s flat. Everything she owned was white you see….and this is white throughout. The sleeve is white the vinyl is white, the enclosed CD is white, the inner sleeve is white. The music? Well it’s white-ish.
This is the man from WU LYF (remember them?) with a short album of whispered songs that recall… oh, it recalls someone. Opener ‘Something Blue’ is like a sad Belle and Sebastien but it’s on ‘Where Life Comes to Live’ that the record starts to flourish - this is gorgeous country-ish stuff with tear drenched steel guitars whining away underneath a bedrock of shuffled drums and a slight lilt to the acoustic guitars. ‘Oh My Love’ sounds like a Young British take on the best bits from those Michael Nesmith albums -- kinda perky but full of countrified longing. ‘Back One Day’ is Brian Wilson transported to Manchester by way of Grizzly Bear.
With just six songs it in no way outstays its welcome and promises a great deal.
