A totally absorbing album, I love how the subtleties and intricacies grab and hold your attention. Melodies and rhythms weave around drone and noise elements which themselves have great movement. Field recordings add tension, at times there's a mechanical feel yet each song also feels like an unfolding story that you are a part of. Andrulian
