joe o’connell’s prolific art folk project returns with a record book-ended by soft waves of AM static crash and synthetic gulls and, nestled between this vocational tableau, is a series of glacial songs characterised by hushed vocals, lonely guitars and atmospheric synth backgrounds.

intruding on the record’s opening seaside scene, A skeleton-thin drum loop jogs by--but these lazy synth tones are just working on their tan. then, just as the soundscape approaches maximum repose, a gnarly guitar band busts into the mix like an odd choice by a half-baked algorithm. offering comparable musicians is possibly a hopeless exercise, since this sounds unlike anything else we’ve heard, but fans of bonnie prince billie, songs:ohia and mark kozelek should look into this. “a dramatically stark but luminous sound” 9/10 – album of the month – uncut.
