8/10 Clinton Staff review, 10 April 2014
Stunning packaging on this luxury re-issue of forgotten gem from oh so many years ago from the same people who brought you that amazingly packaged Workhouse 10". Beautiful big, busty vinyl with lovely booklet attached featuring lyrics, photos etc. Ant had this to say way back when "kind of depressing but beautiful....similar to Red House Painters and have been described as Bedhead crossed with Wilco". The latter comparison is fairly spot on. I'd also add a healthy dose of Pernice Brothers/Scud Mountain Boys to that list. Its fully of beautifully produced heartfelt alt country with whispered romantic vocals and the odd steel guitar here and there to make you weep into your beer. Hints of Elliott Smith here and there but generally its lovingly made, lush melancholic country-ish beauty. If you dig that sort of thing you'll have much to enjoy here.
8/10 Ant Staff review, 27 November 2006New Kepler Album 'Attic Salt' is out on Resonant. This is kind of depressing but beautiful. This is the third album from the Canadian guys and their first in three years. This album has already come out in the states. Not really my kind of thing this, although there is a dark humor to the lyrics which is interesting. Similar to Red House Painters and have been described as Bedhead crossed with Wilco.
