Three things about this new collection of music from Columbo are short and sweet. It Just Happened which provides the title track captures a timely, atmospheric series of moments as beats break and throb across an introspective set of keys and undulating pads. Uncomplicated yet beautifully to the point at almost three and a half minutes in duration. The following, Hope Battle gets even more under the skin via its gentle shuffle of drums accompanied by compelling, shimmering repetitions, leaving the excellent Let Me Dance Alone to contrast it all as the elevation of more strident beats combine with teasing synth lines amid a tempting blur of stranger, filtered atmospheres.
