the original boomkat review below:
Brand new on Moteer's hugely collectable and bespoke "micro brewery" offshoot label, this gorgeous debut album takes the form of a double 3"CD-R, the music fitting this diminutive format down to the ground. These eight miniature compositions draw on clickety clack fractured folkisms, tactile field recordings and the kind of warm, cosy synthesis you'd associate with early Mùm and Remote Viewer themselves. Using an array of different acoustic instruments (usually guitars, glockenspiels and melodica rendered in hushed, intimate detail) the Kentuckian band fashion some beautiful auditory confections, with a particular highlight arising from 'Mosquito Winter', a beautifully restrained exercise in micro-beat crackle and gentle, electronic hum. The closing piece, 'Passing Time Too', which distils raw and formative elements into a sublime and direct 'song' format, leaves you with that typical bittersweet melancholy so often a signature of this label's best output. A delightful double-helping of divine miniatures from the reliably ace Moteer stable - and as ever with these editions, they just ain't going to last.
