Reviews

"Instead of the familiar sparkle and shine of most modern dance music a hearthy fireside glow pervades a remarkably varied selection of tracks, from the brooding snaky grooves of “Fighting Cider” to the mellow atmospheric stabs of “Diurnal Arc”… a thorough mastery of arrangement and melody. The music flows effortlessly, never over saturated with ideas yet consistently maintaining interest as frenetic builds and enveloping breakdowns warp and weave their way through an ever shifting landscape of melodies and rhythms.

A resounding testament to the warmth and spirit of the machines that made electronic music.”

(Review by Igloo Mag)

"This album is in parts, good old fashioned tuneful electronic music with many a humorous cheeky nod to bits of old kit – wavering theremin type sounds inhabit a few of the tracks for example. Occasionally. things head down more contemporary routes such as on “Panstarrs” where pointillist tom toms and Plaid style melodies fire off at oblique angles accompanied by the type of thrusting urgent sub Shackleton might deploy.

Then, just to remind us what all this is about the trio (for there are three synth fiddlers) strike up with “Nguyen” – placing us slap bang back in the early ’90s, when a nice melody was a nice melody and you can take your auto tuned EDM filth and shove it up your ass. Altogether this is an excellent release from Uncharted Audio.
