the duo’s eccentric mix of guitar-driven electronica & propulsive drumming is once again embellished with spoken word samples culled from exclusive archive footage from the British Film Institute.

this compelling new record tells the story of the American & Soviet space race from 1957–1972 & the uniquely rich period of modern history serves as a perfect backdrop for the 2nd full-length from the continuously inventive outfit. 'valentina' features guest vocals from smoke fairies. "ambitiously extraterrestial...wild musical miscegenation" 4/5 - mojo, "rich & evocative....the sound of 2 young men gazing heavenwards & dreaming" 7/10 - uncut,  "consistently fascinating & completely enchanting...Just wonderful" 8/10 - drowned in sound.
