This album is engaging, powerful, and completely danceable. The fidelity, definition and depth of sound is only a compliment to the irresistible hooks it holds.

Lusky, Album (full-length)
It sounds familiar to me. I was born in the seventies and it reminds me of the electronic eighties which is when I started to buy music. I like the unusual beats, something different about the drums which is unusual these days when everything is supposed to have been done.

Sea of sound
A beatifull piece of electronic music that puts you (or a dancefloor) in a complete deep atmosphere to enjoy sound and dream. It embraces you and takes you in a whole journey on the sea… It laso evoke good feelings, hope, love and dedication to art.

Love / Hate
Maya Jane Coles
First and foremost, it’s a fantastic dancefloor track. It’s hits your ears in all the right places to make you move. However, what I find really impressive and unique about this track is how it creates a sense of physical sense space with its percussion.

No More Stories…
Mew is one of the best finds in music. Their albums never disappoint.

Remove Not the Forgotten Landmarks
bandcamp/missincinnatti, Album (full-length)
New arrangments of sea shanties and traditional folk songs; beautiful and simple, but challenging and adventurous at the same time. All three members have a rich history of playing difficult free improvised music, so to hear them apply those skills to super-melodic songs is extremely satisfying. There is nothing improvised here, though, everything is carefully calculated. This is one of those rare records that feels as though every arrangment choice was made not because of the abilities or limitations of the performers, but because of what the songs actually *needed* – hence the choices feel surprising, but never incongruous. Instrumentation: Voice, Cello, Guitar (electric & acoustic), electronics, field recordings, assorted percussion.

I like how this track has an old photek feel but with modern production techniques.
