Those cheeky Scottish scamps De-Fence have another of those bleeding split 10" jobs out again. I'm too hungry to give this a fair write up. So I'll have a strawberry chew. Yum. That tastes delicious. Oh what's this gentle, pastoral piano & subtle electronic wonderment i'm hearing? That yearning highlands murmer sounds incredibly like KING CREOSOTE! Aw! That's real nice. It could only be that JON HOPKINS fellow contributing to his side of Volume 2 of the 10x10 series. The second track is a heartfelt vocal & keyboard ballad called 'Stones' that could well cause you to rupture a gut in your pirsuit of a wee dram to calm your soul after you've just run over the singer out of Keane. On t'other side is Reuben Taylor. He provides us with a smattering of shimmering Vangelisisms before 'Fanfare' erupts into some kind of classical trance. IE more Vangelis but a little too fast. It must be summat in the spring water. Then it goes all Take the High Road easy going like, making me think i'm handgliding over some Scottish mountain with a pack of Abernethy biscuits for my ruddy faced sweetheart. Or stuck in a freezing guest house with some mad lady & her psychotic piano pounding husband. With a glass eye. Bizarre
