9/10 Brian Staff review, 31 May 2007

'From' the Ground Up' is the debut album from Brum melancholists shady bard (so humble they choose lower-case) and it's a rousingly pretty/sad-hued treat from start to finish. Taking its cue from the twinkly songs of Sparklehorse, the earthy simplicity of early Coldplay & the epic, forboding echo of iLiKETRAiNS it embraces autumnal, environmental themes within its fragile songs. The band endorse such beauties as French horn & cello to embellish these gentle beasts, a mood or feeling bringing to mind in parts the Scots band Long Fin Killie or a baby Godspeed p'haps. And certainly there's moments of surprising bombast to be devoured & some of the most basic chord changes will warm your heart! A sound all-rounder, this tender & moving first effort can only lead to bigger triumphs! Includes the singles 'Treeology' & 'Penguins', CD only on Static Caravan.
