about

i was amazed that they were still practicing their mysterious art, because i thought they'd given up a long time ago, but on the evidence of this, i'm glad they haven't.
john peel - radio1

this is a pleasantly creepy, frankly wonderful little album. ...a very cool, enjoyably moody surprise.
jon darnielle - magnet usa

Lawrie and co's latest incarnation is a more brooding affair, mixing up drum machines, vocoders, and cellos in a decidedly 21st century manner. An odd, but by no means unwelcome, return.
david sheppard - Q magazine

a very trippy agenda.
george parsons - dream magazine #3

cool, hazy hallucinations - the perfect prescription for too much life.
james nelms - sonic space magazine

from shoegazers to sonic architects.
shane quentin - the garden of earthly delights

the electronic space to experiment and the interstellar space to dream.
jimmy possession - robots and electronic brains

unique, laid-back, beautiful and chaotic by equal measures, and for music that was so obviously a serious labor to put together, it all sounds amazingly fluid and natural.
Pitchfork score 8.3
