This utter delight of a recording is a joy to behold. I've never read such a concise, accurate press release for an album. The mood is euphoric melancholy. Untouchable neo classical beauty that expresses itself in many forms. Playful, layered, twinkling lullabies fall into somber electronics, Philip Glass/Terry Riley inpired minimal repetition that builds...& bulds...& builds till you are taken on a journey to astral plains. Then you are suddenly dumped inside the soundtrack to Amelie whilst still dusting the magic Iron Henry fairy dust from your shoulders in bemusement. Add lashings of cheeky eastern European folk, circus waltzes, Aphex Twin's attitude to the outer realms of experimental techno (Think the D-Scape mix of "on") & god knows what else! Think along the lines of Yann Tiersen & Max Richter and you'll be somewhere near!
A huge Autechre fan, Gareth has been building up an enviable, unclassifiable sound that's all his own yet guided by his obvious love for deep electronic imbued music stirred with soul & timelessness. I once read a review of Queens of the Stone Age's 'Songs for the Deaf" that stated "You could live inside this album for a month". This is completely poles apart but you can apply the same respect & logic. Please buy this incredibly moving CD. It'll make your 2007 go with a bang!
