Sundown is the result of 6 whole years of work from Sabbatical, meaning that these pieces are deep, deep works. Many layers of omnichord, autoharp, synthesizer, tape delay, melodicas etc. are layered atop one another, with mind-consuming results. Limited edition of 300 vinyl copies on the Love All Day label.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 January 2016

Sabbatical are very patient people in a world where snow trends on Twitter as the first flake falls.

They’ve sprint six years honing their deep dark ambience and as a result their music sounds carefully crafted, the light touch of a finger on synth.  ‘Hills and Fences at Dawn’ slowly unfurls, it’s soft synth glints in the darkness and over time flutters into life before the chords of ‘Sojourn North’ waft in an out of view, the softness is interrupted by the odd guitar stroke - it’s barely there but vitally important. This is as slow as music gets so when they find a wonder chord as on ‘Blue Again’ it hits right there (*points to stomach*). Like Prefab Sprout's ‘Desire As’ played it 16 RPM you sound your time waiting for the next glacial note. The only time they get busy is on the pulsing synths of closer ‘Drifting in a Dream’ yet they still sound blissful.

This is gorgeous. Fans of Brian Eno, Alvin Curran, Susumu Yokota.
