Pleasant thoughtful rock from ex-Gaster del Sol/Squirrelbait guitarist (this is his 4th solo release so perhaps it’s time to stop referencing his past) Hannah Marcus contributes some vocals. Matmos does some electronics but not much.|
1,2.Minor key mid-tempo. Fem backing vocals. Nice drum sound.
3.slower, no drums
4.Add cello- guitar/drums still take lead. Very nice.
+5.instr, mid-tempo, great playing, unpretentious
6.short. high pitched drone
7.can hear some of Matmos’s noises here, dissonant piano track
8.more successful/cohesive piano track but drigeful. abstract percussion
+9.calexicoish drums/guit- mid/slow, jaded voice
10.faster, doesn’t really work
+11.Epic track, everyone contributes, long build, piano bridge to electronic noise. No vocals after T-4:30, if you feel like a voiceover.
12. quiet, ambient non-track of static and low tones.
