Dreamy late spring/early summer sounds. Ambient-shoegaze-noise artist working primarily with guitar, synthesizer, and drum machine. Stronger pop elements make for his most straightforwardly shoegaze record yet, continuing in the vein of his previous tape In Summer. More vocal-driven than usual and features the hazy vox of Argentinian singer-songwriter Sobrenadar. Gorgeous, heady stuff.|

1. (1:27) In a Copse—Slow, eerie, marchlike.
2. (10:07) *** A Song of Summer—Joyous, exhilarating. Hardly slows down until the last few minutes. Ends with soft noise and vocal strands.
3. (2:17) ** Echoing Green—Subdued atmospheric solo guitar, later joined by bass.
4. (6:43) ** The Faun—Straining, swaying guitars beneath waves of noise. Nostalgic. Last minute is extremely sparse noise with an unsteady drumbeat.
5. (5:01) *** Tenderness—Uplifting, glowing guitars. Vox seem very Present. Soft glittery outro.
6. (3:14) Vulgar Latin—Harsh white noise and tape hiss. Gradually builds in weird found sounds, drones, piano.
7. (1:28) Autumn—More noise, tape hiss to start. Pretty guitars bloom for a short while.
8. (6:00) ** Dancers at the Spring—Starts with loud tapping before some swirling melodic guitars enter the landscape. Overall calm and contemplative.
9. (2:06) Door to Night—Mostly frantic noise and found sound until a pleasant ambient finish.
