Whyte Rushan well I heard this on Frendly Potential radio on 95BFM, and I wrote the name of the artist down, on the back of my left hand, with a black Bic Biro...thanks now playing the CD here in New Zealand, very good it is!!! Favorite track: Longest Summer.

Finn of Tomland From what i heard in the SoundCloud preview this album is a little askew journey for lounging like a lizard in the sun, in other words perfect no matter what time of the year!

This new LP is a beautiful series of time digger tracks that offer, each time, a meticulous and ethereal amalgam of chords and melodic motifs. They deploy themselves throughout a grand and playful dance, organically - but precisely - pulsing in the front line, transmuting from tone to sound and vice - versa, alternatively, gently.

The reverb guitar and dynamic drums might as well set up for a light - headed and nostalgic journey; however, one is seriously involved in a deep trip to holographically arranged music, radiance, into contemplative fragments.

Elongated tones and desynchronized perpetual chord canons get the forty-five minutes rolling, within which blurry strings and drum slide and extend.
Composed chanting runs alongside cinematic melodies, and teach each other features.

Singing lines dissolve in soundscapes, soundscapes travel through digital and analog instruments to utter. Each track is the expression of its characters in certain aspects, it unfolds rather than develops, in such manner that melodies seem to have barely enough time to settle. What leads to take off is the actual take off, which makes it a true master piece for presence. Not one listen is - should be - the same.
Add to that a few ecstatic cadenza sneaking in the underlying and powerful classical music legacy in the otherwise adventurous, psychedelic ambient opus, and you’ve got your pass, visit eleven barometer portals to rimstones of vibrant matter.
