Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2010-12-09 
Minimalist slowcore. There are drone, folk, and noise influences as well. It has that wonderful feeling of introspective, gauzy, navel-gazing, drugged delirium about it that Kranky seems to always serve. Boduf Songs is Mat Sweet out of Southampton England, and has been bringing us down with Kranky since 2005. For fans of Rivulets, Codeine, Autistic Daughters, To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie. No FCCs.

1. Violent imagery, delicate, stripped piano, some dark backing vocals. (4:45)
*2. Some touches of electronics, hammered tuned percussion, erupts with full band drum kit and bass and blippy squeaks, sustained casio string tones. (6:48)
3. Slow electronic percussion after drawn out intro; dark, drunken guitar chords. (5:51)
*4. Electronic noise hisses over easy minor chord acoustic guitar strum, builds to a nice little climax of distorted guitar and upper-register vocals. (3:59)
5. Brief ominous interlude with distant, dark vocals. (0:51)
6. Drum machine kicks off track, synth pads carry basic tune, big electric guitars come in a bit later, very dark tone. (5:45)
7. Another ominous, atmospheric intro, straightforward minimal guitar and simplistic vocal line, builds to a hypnotic trod; fantastic slowcore. (7:45)
*8. A little more upbeat, cathartic, melodic, “songy.” Pretty damn good and easy to like. (5:41)
