I’m not going to risk boring you with the word otherworldly. Although, of course, it does fit this strange concoction of ever expanding soundscapes. But because listening to the artists music, predating him signing to 4AD, is a blissful experience that tugs at the edges of beauty, albeit in slightly unnerving ways. It is slightly confusing to think that these tracks have been transferred from cassette tape as the sheer intensity of it all speaks volumes about the music itself rather than anything else. You could imagine the breath of Nick Drake’s voice adorning the acoustic guitar strains on Something About Hope. While, All The Mirrors In The House conjures up a sinister imagination, contrasted by the turmoil injected emotional rush of Because Piano. This is music which exits beyond time and place. Completing via the melancholy sensations of the F Choir. If it’s safe to use the word, spiritual then let’s go for that instead.
