blending picturesque trad folk arrangements with extraterrestrial synthesised sounds, he creates a unique and bountiful spin on the pastoral sound that’s more deeply involving and inventive – an artist at the height of his game.

this showcases his natural inclination to take his songs and “screw them up,” by applying synthesiser drones and circuit burps, found sounds and spoken word audio samples that give all of his records such wonderful atmosphere, as if they’re haunted by rogue half-tuned signals from another world. The album features the multi-instrumentalist Emma Smith (Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins), who plays a plethora of instruments across the album’s 11 tracks. “like his pals james yorkston and malcolm middleton, seamus fogarty lurches between storytelling troubadour and electronica maverick” – uncut.
